Diversity in Recruiting



The firm’s unique culture – which encourages teamwork and discourages internal competition – provides institutional support for our diversity and inclusion efforts.  We understand that a team of individuals with diverse backgrounds, outlooks and interests enhances our ability to solve the complex legal problems that our clients face. Robinson Bradshaw is committed to recruiting and retaining people of diverse backgrounds, outlooks and interests who share a commitment to our core ideals of professionalism, excellence and teamwork. Our Diversity and Inclusion Committee focuses the firm’s efforts on maintaining an environment that embraces individual differences and promotes the personal inclusion of all lawyers and staff.

Among our many diversity activities, Robinson Bradshaw was one of 14 initial law firm signatories to the Mecklenburg Call to Action Diversity Initiative. We have also been actively involved with the Charlotte Legal Diversity Clerkship program since its inception. This program recruits first-year law students interested in the Charlotte area for paid summer positions, during which the students split their time between law firms and area corporate legal departments. The Clerkship program is a very successful joint effort between law firms, legal departments and the Mecklenburg County Bar.

Robinson Bradshaw is also a proud member of the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity, a network of leaders from corporations and law firms committed to building a more open and diverse legal profession. Through the 1L LCLD Scholar program, diverse first-year law students are given the opportunity to work with an LCLD member organization.
