LCLD is an organization of more than 275 corporate chief legal officers and law firm managing partners who have dedicated themselves to creating a truly diverse U.S. legal profession. Their programs are designed to attract, inspire and nurture talent within organizations, helping a new and more diverse generation of attorneys ascend to positions of leadership.

Jeanah Park, Chair of Vedder Price’s Diversity Committee and 2019 LCLD Fellow, said “We are excited for David to join the Fellows program and look forward to expanding our involvement with LCLD through his leadership. David is a terrific ambassador for the firm and we’re grateful to have him in this role.”

In addition to naming Mr. Hernandez as a Fellow, Vedder Price will continue its partnership with LCLD’S Pathfinder program with the selection of Associate Monique Chase to the 2020 class of Pathfinders.
