William Malpica

Will Malpica, as an associate only seven years out of law school, has made a lasting impact on the diversity of the New York legal community in his short career. Will has focused not only on increasing diversity in his own firm, Mayer, Brown, Rowe & Maw LLP, but also to help racial/ethnic minority students succeed in law school and beyond. As a young attorney without the institutional clout of a partner title, Malpica is remarkably adept at using his passion and influencing skills to secure resources and support at his firm and from external organizations. To maximize time and other resources, Malpica strives to create annual programs with systemized processes to enable him or others to easily replicate year after year. One example of a program Malpica spearheaded is the Annual Minority Law Student Leadership Summit, which is now in its third year. The event (which has attracted more than 150 leaders from minority student organizations at approximately 20 law schools in the Northeast) provides a forum for student leaders to discuss solutions to common challenges. full description
