Law students, lawyers, and firm management place increasing value on a diverse working environment. That's why Vault has devoted a special section to associates’ rankings on diversity issues.

  • Survey Methodology

    Lawyers and firm management place increasing value on a diverse working environment. That's why Vault has devoted a special section to associates' rankings on diversity issues. Our diversity section includes separate categories for diversity as it relates to minorities, women, LGBT individuals, individuals with disabilities and military veterans. To determine our Best 25 Law Firms for Diversity, we used a formula that weighed the five categories evenly for an overall diversity ranking.
