Law Firm Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Please click here for the results of the 2023 Vault Law Firm DEI Survey. The 2022 survey results have been archived here. If your firm would like to participate in the 2024 survey, please email lawsurveys@vault.com.

2023 marks the third year of Vault Law's Law Firm Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) Survey. This year, almost 200 law firms, including approximately 90 percent of the Vault Law 100, took part between May and July 2023.

This new survey focuses on the candidate perspective, to help inform law students and laterals about prospective employers’ commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. In addition to detailed demographic data, the survey asked firms about measures to address implicit bias in recruitment, promotion, and work allocation; scholarships or internships for diverse students; professional development and mentorship opportunities; compensation information, including whether attorneys receive billable credit for DEI work; parental leave policies and programs available to working parents; steps to ensure inclusiveness for transgender individuals and accessibility for attorneys with disabilities; and much more.
