What We Offer

We think it’s crucial to nurture talent that’s as diverse as our business. Our growth is down to attracting and promoting excellent individuals from around the world, which is why you’ll find an open, inclusive culture at each of our locations. Being open-minded and treating everyone with respect and dignity allows us to have a richly diverse firm that reflects our global presence.

Our people are at the heart of everything we do. Our lawyers are smart, collaborative and easy to work with. It’s our people’s talent, enthusiasm and ambition that enables us to offer our clients world-class legal advice, resolve disputes and make headlines across the world. And it all starts with teamwork.

We foster an inclusive culture, seamless and integrated across all practices and regions. Our employee pool is wide and is representative of our global firm, varying in experiences and backgrounds. We recruit, develop and promote the highest caliber lawyers regardless of race, religion, beliefs, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, age, disability or sexual orientation. It’s important to us that we encourage inclusion; we believe it’s a crucial driver of success in our multicultural world.

What We Offer

Mentoring

We provide multiple avenues for lawyers seeking opportunities to discuss their career development plan such as with practice leaders, supervising lawyers and mentors and through coaching programs. One useful tool is the Career Development Plan. This plan is intended to help associates focus on where they are now and where they want to be in the future. 

Being mentored is an important part of a lawyer’s career development. First year associates and laterals are assigned to a mentor whey they start at the firm, and all lawyers have the opportunity to participate in our mentoring platform, CONNECTIVITY.

What We Offer

Working here will give you a balance between local and global work. All students are given challenging work, high levels of responsibility, substantial case management and client contact from an early stage. We’re a truly global platform, so you can be sure we will equip you with the skills to understand the international business world. Our lawyers will flexibly guide and support you every step of the way.

What We Offer

Mayer Brown Diversity Scholars Program

Mayer Brown is committed to improving diversity at the firm and in the community at large. Our Diversity Scholars Program is just one example of the many initiatives the firm has implemented to promote diversity and inclusion. The program provides a number of individual scholarships that total $25,000 (less applicable withholding taxes) to qualified law students who join our 2021 Summer Program after completing their second year of law school. For scholarship recipients, the first $15,000 will be paid upon joining our 2021 Summer Program. An additional $10,000 will be paid after graduation (or any clerkship) upon joining the firm as a full-time associate. This scholarship program was created to acknowledge and reward law students with strong academic records who share our commitment to diversity in the legal profession. We are proud to provide this financial support for tuition expenses for such high-achieving students.
