2019 Vault/MCCA Law Firm Diversity Survey

The Vault/MCCA Law Firm Diversity Survey for 2019 is now open!

If you are a law firm, please take part in this free survey to show your firm’s support for diversity, inclusion & equity and the transparency of your results. If you are a corporate law department, please promote the survey to your outside counsel as we work together to measure and track diversity progress in the legal industry.

This is the 16th edition of our annual survey since we launched the initiative in 2004 to support the Chief Legal Officers’ Call to Action to increase diversity in the legal profession. We worked closely with a general counsel advisory group to draft questions that will improve diversity and measure progress.

MCCA and Vault have also developed a database of historical survey results to make it easier for in-house counsel to track diversity within a particular firm and for law firms to benchmark their progress against their peers. Updated annually with the survey data collected directly from more than 200 law firms, the Vault/MCCA Diversity Database is the only comprehensive database of its kind in the legal profession. The database includes more than 10 years of information for a majority of the AmLaw 200 firms as well as dozens of smaller firms.

Whether you are a firm who has participated in our survey or a client who wants to assess the progress of your outside counsel, the Vault/MCCA Database can provide that information in minutes and it is free to the legal community. You will find the Law Firm Diversity Database at http://mcca.vault.com.

Vault compiles a comprehensive Law Firm Diversity Survey Report, which details the results from each year’s survey. Click here to download a copy of the 2018 Report.
