Diversity Lab announced today that 100 leading law firms have achieved Mansfield Certification after completing the twelve-month program.

The goal of the Mansfield Rule is to boost the representation of diverse lawyers in law firm leadership by broadening the pool of candidates considered for these roles and opportunities.
