Washington, D.C. - June 16, 2009: Crowell & Moring LLP is pleased to announce that the firm ranked among the top law firms in the ALM Media/Incisive Media Minority Law Journal's 2009 "Diversity Scorecard."

In 2009, the Minority Law Journal used a new method of calculating diversity - giving credit to firms that have increased the racial diversity of their partnership ranks. Under the new method, each responding firm's percentage of minority lawyers was combined with its percentage of minority partners to come up with a diversity score. Crowell & Moring was given a diversity score of 25.9.
