As one of the leading firms in the Southeast, it is important that we create and maintain a talented and diverse body of attorneys within our offices. To this end, we have devoted substantial recruitment efforts to attracting and retaining those attorneys who can bring to our team approach a wide variety of backgrounds and life experiences. We participate each year in minority job fairs and select schools for our on-campus interviews based, in part, on the diversity of the school's student body. Bass, Berry & Sims participates in the Leadership Council for Legal Diversity's (LCLD) 1L Scholar Program whose overall goal is to increase diversity in the legal profession.
Through these efforts, we maintain our firm wide approach to hiring candidates for attorney positions without a basis on race, religion, color, age, gender, national origin, sexual orientation, physical capabilities or marital or family status. This commitment conveys our firm's goal to recruit and retain lawyers who will foster and encourage a diverse and inclusive workplace.
