Attend CMCP Signature Events
CMCP signature events are valued by both law firms and legal departments for corporate and public agencies.
The Annual Business Conference is a two-day event packed with business networking and educational programming with attorneys of color centered in the roster of speakers, program topics, and DEI issues addressed throughout.
Corporate Connections – speed networking interviews for the busy executive seeking an efficient and effective opportunity to meet diverse law firm representatives.
Counsel Connect – small group networking with attorneys of color in the same practice area.
Women of Color Conference – our stand-alone conference for women of color business attorneys to listen, share, and connect.

Annual Business Conference
Attend the conference and take advantage of two days filled with opportunities to connect – through Corporate Connections interviews, interactive breakout groups, receptions, and more. Connections and business/job opportunities abound during the entire conference, so come prepared to meet new people everywhere – in the hallways, at the receptions, and riding the elevators.
Law Firms & Corporations: Attendees include associates and junior partners, and non-managing attorneys, in addition to legal service providers. A number of conference programs focus on professional development and connections for younger attorneys.
In-House Counsel: Attorneys from your company may participate in Corporate Connections (conference registration is free for in-house attorneys who do these interviews). The professional development activities and connections made during the entire conference are as important to in-house counsel as law firm attendees.

Send CMCP Your Success Stories
Let us promote your successes in CMCP e-Bulletins, e-Newsletter and/or on our website.
Much of the member news published in CMCP e-Bulletins, e-Newsletters, website and social media is received directly from our members. Some member news is periodically selected by CMCP as we find it in other publications recognizing members for their achievements. Our priorities for selecting success stories for publication include:
- News specifically about CMCP and our members that is of particular interest to the CMCP community.
- In accord with CMCP’s mission, we emphasize the successes of minority attorney members and celebrate the successes of entire member organizations such as law firms and corporate legal departments. CMCP does this routinely through programs such as an annual recognition of minority attorneys who are elevated to partner, and by saluting member firms and companies recognized as diversity leaders.
- CMCP will highlight our members’ successes as much as we can within our capacity. In fairness to all our members, we may limit the number of mentions of a particular member organization or individual attorney within a given period of time.
News that is time sensitive may be posted above events that will happen later.
