Statement on Diversity, Inclusion and Justice for All
Recent events in Nevada, America and in many countries around the world have led our human race to new levels of both unity and divisiveness. This moment calls each one of us to examine both our core principals of humanity, and our responsibilities to make this world a better place.
The State Bar of Nevada issues this statement as a commitment to our attorney’s oath that we will support the Constitution and the Government and will promote the administration of justice. The State Bar of Nevada stands for justice for all and against racism and the systematic abuse of the justice system.
The State Bar of Nevada has committed to address the issue of race through open dialogues on diversity and inclusion, listening to the obstacles and experiences of people of color, and to explore ways to assist those lawyers and all people to know their legal rights and to protect such. Our work will continue through the sharing of our findings with law firms, promoting the benefits of diversity and inclusion in the firm setting and assisting firms to meet their diversity and inclusion goals.
