To our readers:
his is the first issue of the ABA Commission on Racial and Ethnic Diversity in the Profession's newsletter for the new bar
year. As we resume publishing the Goal IX Newsletter in a hard copy format, the Goal IX Newsletter will continue to be
disseminated electronically and made available for downloading from the Conmmission's website. However, we hope the
hard copy format will allow for a more thorough distribution of this publication. As we launch this renewed format that
includes articles from our sister entities within the ABA Diversity Center: the Council on Racial and Ethnic Justice and the
President's Advisory Council on Racial and Ethnic Diversity in the Profession, we hope that you will find the new Goal IX
Newsletter informative, and enjoyable and we welcome your feedback.
