Cheesesteaks. The Liberty Bell. Rocky. What first comes to mind when you think of Philadelphia? These iconic staples are easy answers. But what about a booming and diverse legal market? If this doesn’t enter your thoughtsit should! Philadelphia is a dynamic city of 1.5 million sandwiched between two known giants in the legal market: New York City and Washington, D.C. Often overlooked, Philadelphia is home to top law firms, varied practices, Fortune 500 businesses and a range of clients. Yet all too often, highly coveted diverse law students and junior lawyers overlook Philadelphia and are won over by its well-known neighbors. In this article, Kari Mitchell, the attorney recruiting manager of Philadelphia-based Morgan Lewis & Bockius, talks with diverse lawyers from the firm and shares their thoughts on the strength of the clients, community, and culture, and highlights why diverse lawyers should reconsider Philadelphia for their practice.
