102 Law Firms Sign On to Pilot Mansfield Rule 3.0
‘Mansfield Rule’ – the next generation of the Rooney Rule – certifies that law firms consider at least 30% diverse lawyers for all governance and leadership roles.
San Francisco, September 3, 2019 – Diversity Lab announced today (press release link) that the 102 trailblazing law firms listed below are piloting Mansfield Rule 3.0.
Now in its third iteration, the Mansfield Rule Certification measures whether law firms have affirmatively considered at least 30 percent women, attorneys of color, LGBTQ+ and lawyers with disabilities for leadership and governance roles, equity partner promotions, formal client pitch opportunities, and senior lateral positions.
New for 3.0 is the addition of lawyers with disabilities. There are also five participating firms, Eversheds Sutherland, Hogan Lovells, Holland & Hart, Miller Canfield, and Stoel Rives, that have volunteered to pilot a more intensive tracking process that measures the consideration of individual demographic groups for each category.
The goal of the Mansfield Rule is to boost the representation of diverse lawyers in law firm leadership by broadening the pool of candidates considered for these opportunities.
