Mansfield Rule

Mansfield Certified Logo 2019
Pepper received certification in 2019 for the Mansfield Rule, powered by Diversity Lab. As part of its continued efforts to actively recruit and advance the recruitment, development and promotion of diverse lawyers, Pepper is participating in Diversity Lab’s Mansfield Rule 3.0 initiative. The Mansfield Rule is named for Arabella Mansfield, the first woman admitted to practice law in the United States. It measures whether law firms affirmatively consider diverse lawyers for promotions, senior-level hiring and significant leadership roles. Under this initiative, Pepper strives for a candidate pool consisting of at least 30 percent women, attorneys of color, attorneys with disabilities, and/or LGBTQ+ attorneys for all lateral hires.

Pepper Hamilton LLP takes very seriously our commitment, and that of our clients, to diversity and inclusion. Pepper is an Equal Opportunity Employer, and we value and encourage qualified applicants without regard to race, color, religion, gender, gender identity, genetic information, marital status, sexual orientation, ancestry, age, national origin, citizenship status, veteran status, union affiliation, disability, or any other protected status under applicable law. We strive to cultivate a diverse and inclusive workplace where we continually promote opportunities for all.
