MCCA is a passionate community of leadership experts, in-house counsel, and law firm professionals dedicated to promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion within the legal profession.
Although our membership includes representatives from Fortune 500® companies and law firms from across the country, our members all have one thing in common: their commitment to making the next generation of legal leaders as diverse as the world we live in. MCCA helps its members foster more inclusive and equitable legal departments and law firms—environments where underrepresented groups feel empowered to speak freely about their opinions and perspectives. As the preeminent voice on diversity issues in the legal profession, we work with our members to advance their DEI commitments and initiatives through industry-shaping publications, research, career development, and high-profile networking events that connect members to exemplary attorneys from a variety of underrepresented groups.

Founded in 1997, MCCA is a 501(c)(3) corporate counsel association. In 2011, MCCA realized the value of partnership with law firms and created the Firm Affiliate Network (“FAN”) membership.
The power of partnership and its benefits became more clear over time, and in 2017, MCCA revamped its membership structure to include both corporate legal departments and law firms.
MCCA created its one membership model open to all corporate legal departments and law firms based on their needs and interest in engagement. In addition to creating more diverse legal departments and law firms, MCCA helps its members foster more inclusive and equitable legal departments and law firms – environments where underrepresented groups feel empowered to speak freely about their opinions and perspectives.
MCCA Approved is a framework for establishing sustainable diversity, equity, and inclusion (“DEI”) strategy focused on actionable solutions for law firms and corporate legal departments. MCCA Approved is distinguishable from other diversity initiatives because it is focused on identifying systemic challenges in recruiting, retaining, and promoting diverse attorneys, which are critical to sustainability and have a notable positive impact.
