Vault's 2009 Law Firms Rankings: Prestige, Quality of Life and Diversity
Vault surveyed more than 18,800 associates at more than 167 major law firms across the country and asked them to rank firms in terms of how prestigious it would be to work for them. For Vault's quality of life rankings, Vault asked associates to rate their own firms on issues such as treatment by partners, formal training, informal training and mentoring, hours and compensation and then scored the firms against each other. Vault has devoted a special section to associates' rankings on diversity issues and also surveyed law firm partners from the nation's most prestigious firms for its Partner Prestige Rankings.
