Justice Liu co-authors Glass Ceiling report

The Recorder reports on the newly published study that Justice Goodwin Liu co-authored in Study: Asian-Americans Face Glass Ceiling in the Law, which begins:
Asian-Americans have been the fastest-growing minority group in the legal profession for the past three decades, but they've made only limited progress in reaching the upper echelons of the law, according to a study released Tuesday.

"Asian-Americans have a firm foot in the door of the legal profession; the question now is how wide the door will swing open," wrote the study's co-authors, including California Supreme Court Justice Goodwin Liu. "Greater penetration into these public leadership roles is critical if the increasing number of Asian-American attorneys is to translate into increasing influence of Asian-Americans in the legal profession and throughout society."
