• “We have the Proskauer Women’s Network, which meets informally monthly to chat about work, life, and otherwise provide support for each other. I know Proskauer recently revised its maternity/paternity leave policy, making it easier to transition back to the workplace by offering reduced hours at full compensation for a period of time. These types of measures are very welcomed to me, as a woman and someone who might have children one day.” • “The firm is very flexible when it comes to the needs of families and persons with disability. There are wonderful mentoring opportunities for women and minorities.”

What students are saying

    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.
