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. Vault's 2021 Rankings are derived from Vault's Annual Associate Survey conducted between late January 2020 through early April 2020.
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 racial and ethnic diversity, as well as diversity as it relates to women, LGBT+ individuals, and individuals with disabilities. To determine our Best 30 Law Firms for Diversity, we use a formula that weighs the four categories evenly for an overall diversity ranking.

Vault's 2021 Rankings are derived from Vault's Annual Associate Survey conducted between late January 2020 through early April 2020.
