Munger Tolles Receives Esteemed Diversity Award

The Minority Corporate Counsel Association presented Munger, Tolles & Olson with the 2010 Thomas L. Sager Award for the Western Region, its highest diversity honor given to law firms. The award is presented regionally, with the Western region comprised of ten states, to law firms that demonstrate sustained commitment to improving the hiring, retention and promotion of minority attorneys. Munger Tolles has taken significant steps to invest in its lawyers and in its community including opening a state-of-the-art onsite childcare center this year, creating an innovative Fellows program for pre-law diverse college graduates, and sponsoring the Los Angeles Metropolitan Debate League to enhance high school literacy and boost graduation rates. In addition to the recognition by the MCCA, Munger Tolles also placed second nationally on the The American Lawyer magazine diversity scorecard which rated 190 law firms.
