Best Law Firms for Diversity

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

    Our diversity rankings are based on each firm's associates' rankings of how the firm does at creating, maintaining, and fostering a diverse workforce. Our diversity rankings include 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 use a formula that weighs the five categories evenly for an overall diversity ranking.
