Vault.com, the source of ratings, rankings and insight for law students and lawyers, will partner with the Minority Corporate Counsel Association (MCCA), an advocate for increased diversity in the legal profession, to present the 7th Annual Legal Diversity Career Fair at the Grand Hyatt in Washington, D.C.
The career fair will bring together hiring partners and recruiters from top law firms and government agencies with diverse candidates that include minorities, women, members of the LGBT community and individuals with disabilities.
During the event, Vault will unveil its Law Firm Diversity Rankings for 2013 and honor the law firms that were the most highly rated by their own associates for their commitment to hiring, retaining and promoting diverse attorneys. The rankings are based on Vault’s Law Firm Associate Survey where close to 17,000 respondents rated their employers on a variety of issues, including commitment to diversity.
