UCLI’s Tracking Progress Committee works with the Utah State Bar and other partners to gather reliable data reflecting the current makeup of Utah’s legal profession and to track the progress of DEI initiatives over time.
The purpose of this effort is to hold the Utah legal profession to more thorough accountability as it works to make itself more diverse, equitable, and inclusive. The data collected and analyzed should provide a benchmark that legal employers can use to gauge their success in attracting, retaining, and promoting diverse talent going forward. UCLI intends to gather data in future years to compare to this baseline.
Certification Program Data Tracking
Each year, UCLI analyzes aggregate, anonymized data from the UCLI Certification Program Survey to better understand the state of diversity, equity, and inclusion in Utah’s legal profession as a whole. For an in-depth look at diversity, equity, and inclusion in Utah’s law firms as of 2020, check out the report, “Looking In & Leading Out: Key Findings on Diversity from the UCLI 2020 Certification Program Survey,” produced by the SJ Quinney College of Law Justice Lab in collaboration with UCLI.
