MCCA DIVERSITY SCORECARD

Empowering legal departments and law firms to measure, monitor, and improve diversity performance through data analytics.

MCCA developed the Diversity Scorecard (“Scorecard”) with a mission to enable legal departments and law firms to understand, monitor and measure diversity performance and progress. Designed and built with both legal departments and law firms in mind, the Scorecard harnesses 14 plus years of law firm survey data collection with 24 years of MCCA research. It is the first-ever data set and ranking for the legal industry, that gathers insights about law firm demographics, leadership composition and the hiring, retention, and promotion of diverse lawyers.

The Scorecard offers legal departments the ability to confidently evaluate outside counsel with objective data, helpful data insights into true diversity performance, and analysis of multiple firms at once – without the need for additional resource allocation. The Diversity Scorecard offers law firms access to tangible metrics that can help identify gaps and opportunities for strengthening DEI efforts, building competitive advantage, and developing policies that create impact and results.

METHODOLOGY

MCCA’s methodology for producing the scorecard involved assessments of participating law firms against MCCA’s own law firm diversity database, aggregated from its annual Law Firm Diversity Survey (Survey). Subject to the accuracy and completeness of the data self-submitted by each law firm in response to the Survey, a rigorous methodology was applied. Components that were not considered applicable to a law firm, or for which no data was obtained through the response of the law firm, were not included in a law firm’s overall score. This was done to ensure that the methodology reflects the realities of all law firms’ demographics, recruitment, retention and promotion – not a one size fits all approach.

The Scorecard is organized into Categories, Elements, and Key Components. There are four categories (1) Demographics, (2) Recruitment, (3) Attrition, and (4) Promotion relevant to each law firm’s DEI practices. Each category has three elements (1) Profile, (2) Trends and (3) Key Components.

Key Components differ per category and represent a law firm’s percentile ranking of the representation of underrepresented racial and ethnic groups, gender and LBGTQ+ per level and the overall disclosure of DEI data versus firms of a similar size. There are 26 components total. These components are scored individually before they are combined into their respective categorical score and percentile. The Key Components were assessed for each stage of a typical lawyer’s career at a law firm, including summer associate, associate, of counsel, non-equity partner (if applicable), equity partner.

The lawyers were categorized according to gender, race/ethnicity (African American/Black, Alaska Native/Native American, Asian, Hispanic/Latinx, Multiracial, Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander, and White/Caucasian), LGBTQ+ and disabilities as recognized under the American with Disabilities Act (ADA).

The Firms were divided into five groups based on the size of the firm: 1) up to 50 lawyers; 2) 51-100 lawyers; 3) 101-250 lawyers; 4) 251-500 lawyers; and 5) more than 501 lawyers. Firms are compared to other firms of similar size and to the industry as a whole.

DIVERSITY SCORECARD FAQS

ABOUT THE SCORECARD (GENERAL OVERVIEW)
What is the MCCA Diversity Scorecard?

MCCA’s Diversity Scorecard is an objective data-driven scoring and ranking system that empowers law firms with data insights to help identify gaps and opportunities for strengthening DEI efforts, build competitive advantage, and develop policies that create impact and results.

Why did MCCA create the Diversity Scorecard?

This Scorecard is in response to general counsel requests for the development of a transparent industry benchmark to better evaluate outside counsel Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) metrics and performance. It is a tool to advance DEI in recruitment, retention, and promotion of females and diverse people, particularly underrepresented racial & ethnic groups.

What are the main objectives of the Scorecard?

Provide comparative information on law firms’ DEI Disclosure, Commitment, and Performance using an objective methodology.

Leverage longitudinal data to identify any trends in the representation of females and diverse people, particularly underrepresented racial and ethnic groups.

Offer leaders benchmarks and comparison tools/metrics to help them compare the current state of their firm to their peers and assist them with the decision of implementing more effective DEI strategies.

What data was used for the Scorecard?

The Scorecards were generated using data collected from the MCCA Law Firm Diversity Survey (the “Survey”).

Methodology

MCCA’s Scorecard methodology assesses participating law firms against MCCA’s own law firm diversity database, aggregated from its annual Law Firm Diversity Survey (Survey). Subject to the accuracy and completeness of the data self-submitted by the law firm in response to the Survey, a rigorous methodology was applied. Components that were not considered applicable to a law firm or for which no data was obtained through the response of the law firm to the Survey were not included in a law firm’s overall score. This was done to ensure that the methodology reflects the realities of all law firms’ demographics, recruitment, retention, and promotion and is not a one size fits all approach.

Data Organization: The Scorecard is organized into Categories, Elements, and Key Components:

  • i. Categories: There are four categories (1) Demographics, (2) Recruitment, (3) Attrition, and (4) Promotion relevant to the law firm’s DEI practices.
  • ii. Elements: Each category has three elements (1) Profile, (2) Trends, and (3) Key Components.

Key Components: Key Components differ per category and represent a law firm’s percentile ranking of the representation of underrepresented racial & ethnic groups, gender and LBGTQ+ per level, and the overall disclosure of DEI data versus firms of a similar size. There are twenty-six components in total. These components are scored individually before they are combined into their respective categorical score and percentile.

The Key Components were assessed for each of the five levels:

  • Summer Associates
  • Associate
  • Of Counsel
  • Non-Equity Partners (if applicable)
  •  Equity Partners

Firms are compared to other firms of similar size and to the industry as a whole.

The lawyers were categorized according to:

  • Gender
  • Race/ethnicity (African American/Black, Alaska Native/Native American, Asian, Hispanic/Latinx, Multiracial, Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander, and White/Caucasian).
  • Sexual orientation
  • Disabilities as recognized under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)

The Firms were divided into five groups based on the size of the firm:

  • Up to 50 lawyers
  • 51-100 lawyers
  • 101-250 lawyers
  • 251-500 lawyers
  • More than 501 lawyers

MCCA LAW FIRM DIVERSITY DATABASE

About the Database

The MCCA Law Firm Diversity Database (“Database”), created by the Minority Corporate Counsel Association (MCCA), provides statistics and other crucial information on diversity at more than 225 law firms nationwide.

Compiled from responses to the annual MCCA Law Firm Diversity Survey, the Database contains valuable benchmarking information about diversity, equity, and inclusion (“DEI”) at participating firms. Entries include quantitative data on the numbers of attorneys who are underrepresented in racial and ethnic groups, women, LGBTQ+, or attorneys with disabilities, as well as qualitative information regarding firms’ DEI strategies and programs. Through this online tool, users can make side-by-side comparisons of diversity metrics, gauge firms’ progress over the years, and measure their performance against industry-wide benchmarks. The Database also includes access to firms’ complete, self-reported survey responses, to present a comprehensive picture of the diversity commitment and programs at each participating law firm. This edition of this Database includes complete survey data since 2007.

When will the new MCCA Law Firm Diversity Database (“Database”) be available?

The new Database launched March 2022.

What is different about the new Database?

The new Database will allow the user to review aggregate data, export via Excel, view graphical representations of the data, and track multiple law firm data simultaneously.

What happened to the previous Vault/MCCA database?

The previous version of the MCCA/Vault law firm database was decommissioned in August 2021 and is no longer available.

Will law firm Scorecards be available in the Database?

No, Scorecards will not be available in the Database. MCCA only shares Scorecards with the respective law firm.

Who will have access to data via the Database?

The general public will have the ability to register and have access to aggregated industry data. This includes law students who are preparing for OCI.

Non-member law firms that participated in the MCCA Law Firm Diversity Surveys will only have access to aggregated industry data at this time. We have a scheduled fall 2022 update that will allow non-member law firm survey participants to access their specific firm data. At this time, non-member law firms will only have access to the aggregated industry data.

MCCA members (law firms and corporate legal departments) will have access to aggregated industry data and law firm-specific data for any firm that has participated in the Survey from 2007 onward.

DIVERSITY SCORECARD FAQS

ABOUT THE SCORECARD (GENERAL OVERVIEW)

What is the MCCA Diversity Scorecard?

MCCA’s Diversity Scorecard is an objective data-driven scoring and ranking system that empowers law firms with data insights to help identify gaps and opportunities for strengthening DEI efforts, build competitive advantage, and develop policies that create impact and results.

Why did MCCA create the Diversity Scorecard?

This scorecard is in response to general counsel requests for the development of a transparent industry benchmark to better evaluate outside counsel Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) metrics and performance. It is a tool to advance DEI in recruitment, retention, and promotion of females and diverse people, particularly underrepresented racial & ethnic groups.

What are the main objectives of the Scorecard?

Provide comparative information on law firms’ DEI Disclosure, Commitment, and Performance using an objective methodology.

Leverage longitudinal data to identify any trends in the representation of females and diverse people, particularly underrepresented racial and ethnic groups.

Offer leaders benchmarks and comparison tools/metrics to help them compare the current state of their firm to their peers and assist them with the decision of implementing more effective DEI strategies.

What data was used for the Scorecard?

The scorecards were generated using data collected from the MCCA Law Firm Diversity Survey (the “Survey”).

Methodology

MCCA’s scorecard methodology assesses participating law firms against MCCA’s own law firm diversity database, aggregated from its annual Law Firm Diversity Survey (Survey). Subject to the accuracy and completeness of the data self-submitted by the law firm in response to the Survey, a rigorous methodology was applied. Components that were not considered applicable to a law firm or for which no data was obtained through the response of the law firm to the Survey were not included in a law firm’s overall score. This was done to ensure that the methodology reflects the realities of all law firms’ demographics, recruitment, retention, and promotion and is not a one size fits all approach.

 

Data Organization: The scorecard is organized into Categories, Elements, and Key Components:

  • i. Categories: There are four categories (1) Demographics, (2) Recruitment, (3) Attrition, and (4) Promotion relevant to the law firm’s DEI practices.
  • ii. Elements: Each category has three elements (1) Profile, (2) Trends, and (3) Key Components.

Key Components: Key Components differ per category and represent a law firm’s percentile ranking of the representation of underrepresented racial & ethnic groups, gender and LBGTQ+ per level, and the overall disclosure of DEI data versus firms of a similar size. There are twenty-six components in total. These components are scored individually before they are combined into their respective categorical score and percentile.

The Key Components were assessed for each of the five levels:

  • Summer Associates
  • Associate
  • Of Counsel
  • Non-Equity Partners (if applicable)
  •  Equity Partners

Firms are compared to other firms of similar size and to the industry as a whole.

The lawyers were categorized according to:

  • Gender
  • Race/ethnicity (African American/Black, Alaska Native/Native American, Asian, Hispanic/Latinx, Multiracial, Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander, and White/Caucasian).
  • Sexual orientation
  • Disabilities as recognized under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)

The Firms were divided into five groups based on the size of the firm:
