The National Association for Law Placement (NALP) released its annual Report on Diversity at U.S. Law Firms on Thursday, which indicates that overall gains—though not substantial—continued to be made in the representation of women, people of color and LGBTQ individuals in the associate and summer associate ranks at major U.S. law firms in 2022, as compared to 2021.

The report, based on information from the 2022-2023 NALP Directory of Legal Employers (NDLE), states that the percentage of Black associates grew by nearly 0.6 percentage points to 5.77%, and the percentage of Black summer associates increased by 0.7 percentage points to 11.85%, according to NALP’s announcement.
