Much is pleased to announce that our firm has joined the Chicago Committee on Minorities in Large Law Firms as part of its ongoing commitment to increasing diversity, equity, and inclusion in the legal industry. As a member firm, Much will support the Chicago Committee’s mission to drive sustainable institutional change, provide professional development opportunities, and cultivate community for diverse attorneys.
The Chicago Committee is a nonprofit organization created in 1987 to provide networking opportunities and support for minority attorneys in an effort to eliminate feelings of isolation at large law firms throughout the city. Since then, the organization has exponentially expanded its efforts to provide more substantive programming for its member firms, their attorneys, and the legal community as a whole.
“Our firm is humbled to join this outstanding group of law firms as a member of the Chicago Committee,” Much Managing Partner Courtney Mayster said. “We are proud to contribute to the Chicago Committee’s work driving institutional change in the legal community, and we know access to the organization’s professional development and relationship-building opportunities will be invaluable for our own Much attorneys.”
