Attorneys at Fox Rothschild can now earn credit for up to 50 billable hours each fiscal year for engaging in professional development and volunteer programs that “advance diversity, equity and inclusion” in the legal profession.

Leaders of the 875-lawyer firm Wednesday said the program is intended to ensure at least 30% of those considered for leadership and governance roles, equity partner promotions, formal client pitch opportunities and senior lateral positions are women, lawyers of color, LGBTQ+ lawyers and lawyers with disabilities—this is the standard set by Diversity Lab’s Mansfield program, which Fox Rothschild joined in May. Diversity credits are in addition to billable hours available through pro bono work, firm leaders said.
