A new web site, Building a Better Legal Profession, ranks and grades large, private law firms on several workplace factors, such as diversity of partners, pro bono work, and billable hours. For a few markets (Manhattan, D.C., Boston, etc.) you can find out how diverse your potential employer is before deciding whether to accept the offer. The site was started by concerned law students interested in workplace reforms.
