Women and blacks are making slow, steady inroads into the ranks of US barristers.

Other minorities, however - Hispanics, for example - are disportionately underrepresented in the nation's large law firms. A National Law Journal Survey of 151 large law offices shows that despite these gains, minorities are still in short supply on the rosters of prestigious legal groups.

Blacks constitute 4.5 percent of these enrollments; Hispanics only 2.5 percent.m
