Religious Diversity Among Attorneys & Law Students

 I received the email copied below and thought it might be of interest to our readers. Thx.

To Whom It May Concern,

Below is a link to a brief survey that was designed to collect information about how lawyers and law students from different faith communities navigate law school and the workplace.  Responses will help develop the issues and discussion of a panel entitled, "Why Won't He Shake My Hand? A close look at Religious Observance from 1L to First Year Associates," to be presented at this year's Annual NALP Education Conference.  Ultimately, the responses will help educate our audience members on how to understand and address these important experiences.

We would greatly appreciate you posting this survey for your members and encouraging them to share their stories with us.  Please note that we have refrained from asking any names of individuals, schools, or employers to maintain anonymity.  However, it should also be noted that any information provided may be presented in the form of hypotheticals and examples during our panel.

The survey can be found here:

Thank you for your help.
