We are proud to share that Buchanan has signed on to the American Bar Association's "Disability Diversity in the Legal Profession: A Pledge for Change." The campaign is led by the ABA's Commission on Disability Rights.
Joining the pledge confirms our firm's commitment to diversity, specifically disability diversity, and recognizes that diversity is in the best interest of the profession and those we serve.
The Pledge was created in response to the lack of lawyers with disabilities in the profession, and was the centerpiece of the Second ABA National Conference on the Employment of Lawyers with Disabilities held in June 2009. Its distribution was approved by the ABA Board of Governors Operations and Communications Committee. In 2012, the Pledge was amended to specifically include judges and judiciaries as signatories. In 2014, the Pledge was again amended to include law schools and state and local bar associations.
