I am currently working on a juvenile immigration matter.” • “My experience with pro bono work has been almost uni- formly positive, with occasional exceptions. The uncapped attribution of pro bono hours toward the billables requirement is an extraordinary commitment, and the pro bono partner and public service committee actively and effectively solicit significant work from enthusiastic attorneys. Many attorneys proudly treat their pro bono projects as an important part of why they practice law at all. However, it cannot be denied that paid work is almost always the priority, and given how busy most attorneys are, this can sometimes mean pro bono work does not receive the level of supervision or dedication that would ensure optimum performance.” • “Pro bono is highly valued. Partners pay attention to skills developed in pro bono cases.” • “I think there is a political slant to many of the pro bono assignments.” Diversity Efforts • “The office is quite diverse, with many women (including influential female partners), persons of color, and LGBT indi- viduals (again, including influential partners).” • “The firm has a reputation for being inclusive. I have heard from several colleagues that the firm has a very generous policy with child care, paternity/maternity leave, and part- time work for new parents wanting to stay working.” • “There are diversity groups, but in my opinion, not particularly active. It seems like cost-cutting measures have had a negative impact.” • “The firm tries, but it has had a tough time retaining women and diverse attorneys through partnership. We have a lot of female associates, but much less female partners and a very small number of female equity partners.”

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
