BakerHostetler Seeks Mansfield Rule Certification Regarding Inclusion, Diversity

News / July 7, 2021

BakerHostetler is participating in the Mansfield Rule 5.0 Certification process launching July 15, 2021. The goal of the Mansfield Rule is to boost the representation of historically underrepresented lawyers in law firm leadership.

It has become the standard by which law firms in the United States track and measure that they have affirmatively considered at least 30 percent women, lawyers from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups, lawyers with disabilities, and LGBTQ+ lawyers for top leadership roles, senior-level lateral hiring, promotions into the equity partnership, and participation in client pitch meetings.

Certification parameters are measured twice a year by Diversity Lab, an independent incubator for solutions that boost diversity and inclusion in the legal industry.
