The policies are there but the culture lags behind.” • “We hire minority attorneys but they never seem to get past the 2nd or 3rd year. LGBT is not an issue at our firm; we have an LGBT committee and some events regarding it. We have a 4 week paternity policy but not sure too many guys take that.” • “Partners at the firm have individually expressed to me that they are committed to increasing diversity at the firm, and I think there is certainly a push within the firm for this to happen. As things currently stand, however, we do still have work to do when it comes to diversity. With respect to maternity/paternity leave, I think we have a fairly generous policy.” • “We have a hard time hiring women associates or minorities due to lack of women and minorities in senior positions.

    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.
