In our 2020 research, we identified the best-performing law firms for diversity & inclusion
For every firm taking part in our annual interview-based research, we also invite their junior associates to respond to an online survey covering every aspect of law firm life. They complete 40 questions asking about everything from their initial views on the firm and its competitors, to their relationships with partners and clients, to the firm's handling of D&I and pro bono. We also ask them about their expectations, aspirations and how important all these factors were when joining the profession and how those views change as they mature. Each question involves a rating, which we agglomerate here for comparison. The diversity and inclusion scores are a combination of all topics that can affect how inclusive a firm is, from hiring, to mentoring, to work allocation, to promotion, to mental health and parental policy.
