About the Mansfield Rule
The Mansfield Rule Certification measures whether law firms have affirmatively considered at least 30 percent women, LGBTQ+ lawyers, and attorneys of color for leadership and governance roles, equity partner promotions, senior lateral hiring, and participation in formal pitch meetings. 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. Learn More
