At Vault, June is synonymous with one thing: the Vault Law rankings. Every year around this time, Vault rolls out our law firm prestige rankings (Vault Law 100, regional, and practice area), along with our summer program, diversity, and quality of life rankings, followed by our midsize rankings in July. 

This year, we have decided to move our rankings release to September 2020. Over the past several months, our team has monitored the effects of the coronavirus pandemic on the entire legal industry. Above all, we understand that now is a time for everyone to focus on their safety and well-being. This also has been a time of change, as many legal employers have transitioned to remote working, law schools and law firms have modified their OCI plans, and law firms have shifted to virtual summer associate programs. In addition, many in the legal industry have been profoundly affected by the recent dialogue surrounding racial inequality and the Black Lives Matter movement and have used this time to reflect and decide how to join the conversation. 

Our goal is to be as supportive as we can during this time of significant change and contemplation. With this in mind, we believe it is best to postpone our rankings this year.  We look forward to sharing Vault’s new 2021 rankings in September once the legal industry has had more time to adapt and law schools kick off another school year. In the meantime, we will continue to share useful and timely career advice via Vault’s Law Blog and Vault’s Coronavirus & the Legal Industry resource. We also plan to release the new Vault/MCCA Law Firm Diversity Survey results in August as usual.
