Diversity Resources

 

The Kentucky Bar Association Young Lawyers Section believes in diversity and is dedicated to increasing minority participation in the legal profession. YLS defines diversity as groups who are typically underrepresented in law school classes, to include racial and ethical minorities, people with disabilities, varied religious affiliations, geographic, socioeconomic backgrounds and sexual orientations.
