Lewis and Roca supports and participates in programs that facilitate the hiring of talented, diverse lawyers, such as the DuPont Minority Job Fair and the IMPACT Career Fair for law students and attorneys with disabilities.
Additionally, the firm supports a variety of efforts that increase the opportunities available to women and minority law students and aim to increase diversity in the pool of candidates from which the firm hires. We provide an opportunity for minority students to obtain intensive, real-world training in writing and research through our sponsorship and participation in the Minority Legal Writing Programs at Arizona State University and the University of Arizona, and we are working with the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, to establish a similar program for its students. We support the Pipeline Program and the Judicial Intern Opportunity Program, which provide internship and training opportunities to minority law students. We have also sponsored the Arizona Women Lawyers Association’s Secrets of Success program, an annual seminar designed to equip women law students and young lawyers with the knowledge to thrive in the private practice of law, since its inception in 2007.
