McGlinchey Stafford PLLC is pleased to announce that Camille Bryant has been selected for the Pathfinders program for diverse, high-potential, early career attorneys, through the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity (LCLD).
Camille Bryant, Associate in the firm’s New Orleans office, has a broad litigation practice, focusing on labor and employment counsel and defense, as well as medical malpractice and products liability defense. She is also incredibly involved in both legal and community organizations, serving as current President of the New Orleans Association for Women Attorneys, State Membership Chair of the Defense Research Institute, and Treasurer of the Greater New Orleans Chapter of the Louis A. Martinet Legal Society.
“We are so proud Camille will represent McGlinchey Stafford as our first LCLD Pathfinder,” said Deirdre McGlinchey, head of McGlinchey Stafford’s Diversity Committee. “Her dedication to excellence, both in her practice and in community service, has distinguished her as a future leader in her field.”
“Camille is very deserving of this honor and will represent the firm well in the Pathfinder program,” said Rudy Aguilar, Managing Member of McGlinchey Stafford. “Through our strong support of the LCLD and its programs, McGlinchey Stafford is committed to supporting and participating in efforts towards diversity and inclusion that will benefit the entire legal profession, as well as the public we all serve.”
According to LCLD President Robert J. Grey, Jr., the LCLD Pathfinder Program offers participants “intensive in-person training, online experiential learning, and opportunities to network with peers and esteemed LCLD Fellows in small group gatherings.”
In 2018, McGlinchey Stafford was honored as a Law Firm “Top Performer” by the LCLD. From the firm’s inception, McGlinchey Stafford has challenged the status quo and earned a reputation as a progressive, merit-based business that rewards individual achievement and potential. In addition to active LCLD membership, McGlinchey Stafford actively supports the Louis A. Martinet Legal Society and Association of Women Attorneys, among other organizations, as well as our own Diversity Committee, Women’s Initiative Network, Hispanic Affinity Group, Asian Affinity Group, and LGBTQ Affinity Group. The firm also offers an annual Diversity Fellowship to a first-year law student, which includes a $5,000 scholarship, a paid Summer Associate position, and formal mentorship from McGlinchey Stafford attorneys throughout the student’s law school career.
The Leadership Council on Legal Diversity (LCLD) is an organization of more than 300 corporate chief legal officers and law firm managing partners working to promote inclusiveness in legal institutions, in circles of influence, and in society, with the ultimate goal of building a more open and diverse legal profession.
