Jenner & Block is Mansfield Certified, meaning that it has at least 30 percent women and minority lawyers in candidate pools for leadership and governance roles, equity partner promotions and lateral positions. Last year, nearly 50 law firms signed on to the inaugural pilot of the Mansfield Rule, an initiative designed to boost leadership roles for women and minorities in leading law firms. In July, the firm enrolled in the second phase of the program—the Mansfield Rule 2.0—which expands the initiative to include LGBT lawyers. The firm is among the 35 firms that have implemented the first version of the rule who have also renewed their commitment to the second, updated version of the Mansfield Rule.
