Consistent with our long-held view that excellence and creativity arise from many sources, diversity is a bedrock principle at Cravath. We embrace the importance of recruiting and retaining outstanding lawyers from different backgrounds, and we are committed to promoting diversity at all levels. There is no Cravath “type.” Our lawyers come from a wide range of backgrounds, yet all share important qualities—intelligence, creativity, work ethic and a desire to excel.
|Our affinity groups provide associates with an additional network where they can seek advice and informal mentoring.||Our partners serve on the leadership bodies of a number of nonprofits, including Lambda Legal and the Neighborhood Defender Service of Harlem.||The National Asian Pacific American Bar Association honored Cravath partner Teena Sankoorikal as one of its “Best Lawyers Under 40.”|
|We are committed to recruiting outstanding talent from a diverse segment of the law school population. As such, we support—through both our involvement and our sponsorship—many law student affinity organizations. We also act in partnership with various organizations that aim to increase the pipeline of diverse persons entering the legal profession.|
