Miller Canfield is pleased to announce that principal attorney Dawn Schluter’s team in the inaugural Women in Law Hackathon, the national competition held to identify paths to achieve gender parity in law firms, was awarded third place among nine teams in the final presentations that took place last week in Palo Alto at Stanford Law School.

Miller Canfield joined with 53 other large U.S. law firms, and the only Michigan-headquartered firm, to participate in this important and innovative national conversation on advancing the careers of women in the legal profession.

The Hackathon was a unique “Shark Tank”-style invitation-only competition. Over a period of six months, each six-lawyer team generated comprehensive presentations of actionable ideas to improve gender parity in law firms. Each team presented innovative projects and initiatives in a final competitive pitch meeting last week at Stanford.

According to BTI, only 40 percent of corporate counsel recommend their primary law firm to a peer. To earn such a high honor, law firms must continuously deliver not only quality legal services, but superior client service.
