For all types of businesses, social responsibility is becoming a strategic imperative, and firms are under pressure to embrace responsible business practices and to promote them as a core part of their business model.

How can we put such practices in context, and evaluate and measure the seriousness with which lawyers and firms are approaching social responsibility? How do we know if firms are just checking a box or putting significant resources into this area of their business?

Law360 Pulse proudly presents the 2022 Social Impact Leaders, a ranking of law firms that seeks to measure their engagement with social responsibility from a holistic point of view.

Our ranking measures firms’ efforts across five pillars: racial and ethnic diversity, gender equality, employee engagement, pro bono service and responsible business practices – a component we added this year. These elements play a strong role in the making of firms’ internal and external reputations, and taken together, form one essential part of what it means to be a leading competitor in the legal market.

This is the first of three rankings that look at firms from multiple angles. Stay tuned for the 2022 Prestige Leaders on Dec. 5 and the Law360 Pulse Leaderboard — our marquee list of the firms that have it all — on Dec. 12.
