A group of Harvard law students pushing to end mandatory arbitration in Big Law have set their sights on a new target—Venable.
The Pipeline Parity Project, as the student organization is called, on Monday through its #DumpVenable campaign called for classmates and law students across the country to boycott interviewing for summer associate positions at Venable in an effort to pressure the firm to stop using mandatory arbitration for any of its employees. Those agreements prohibit employees from suing over workplace issues such as harassment and discrimination. Additionally, the group is asking all law student organizations to refuse sponsorships from Venable and any other law firm that uses mandatory arbitration.
