undocumented aliens achieve a path toward citizenship.” Diversity Efforts • “The associate pool is very diverse in terms of gender, but the partnership is not. Minority diversity needs improvement. While the firm has systems in place to attempt to address these issues, there doesn’t seem to be tangible results yet.” • “The firm is committed to hiring and retaining diverse attorneys. The diversity committee actively looks for ways to increase the presence of diverse attorneys within the firm. This past year, about 40% of the new partners that were made were women. It is an issue that is openly discussed and the firm actively seeks feedback. The legal profession has a long way to go and they recognize that; they want to be better. Even though this doesn’t affect me currently, the maternity/paternity leave policy is not that generous, but I think it’s on par with other law firms.” • “The firm offers generous maternity leave and ramp-up programs to allow mothers to work and still take time for families. There are a lot more male partners than female partners, and no female partners in my office.” • “There’s approximately gender parity at the junior associate level, but there are fewer women at the partner and leadership levels. Apparently there’s a flex program of some sort for women coming off of maternity leave. The Bay Area is quite diverse, both in the tax group and the PA/SF offices as a whole.”

    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.
