McAndrews Signs On To Diversity Lab’s Inaugural Mansfield Rule for Midsize Law Firms


As part of our longstanding commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, McAndrews has signed on to Diversity Lab’s inaugural Mansfield Rule for Midsize Law Firms, which launches today. This initiative, modeled after the original Mansfield Rule, certifies midsize law firms that have established diversified candidate pools through their consideration of historically underrepresented lawyers for significant leadership positions and key advancement opportunities.

Lisa Kirby, Chief Intelligence and Knowledge Sharing Officer, Diversity Lab, highlights the gains partner firms have made by participating in their program. “We are incredibly excited to launch the Midsize Mansfield Rule this fall with trailblazing firms like McAndrews, Held & Malloy onboard to help us test it. Deliberate actions toward progress are unquestionably key right now, and we’re thankful to have firms like McAndrews ready to take action with us.”
