Ice Miller LLP follows the set of hiring criteria outlined below.
Ice Miller considers each candidate on an individual basis taking into consideration things such as law school performance, personality, skills, work and life experiences as well as the needs of the Firm. The Firm's director of legal personnel and diversity works closely with the Firm's hiring partner, personnel committee and managing partners regarding recruiting and hiring practices. A number of internal initiatives such as firm-wide diversity training (started in 2006), and the creation and implementation of the Diversity Strategic Plan, have increased the overall awareness of and focus on diversity hiring during the recruiting process for new lawyers (just out of law school) and lateral lawyers. Specifically, in addition to traditional venues, the Firm has identified a number of organizations in different markets whose mission is to promote diversity and/or women and that have a vehicle to broadcast employment opportunities to broader diverse audiences. For example, Ice Miller is a member of the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity (LCLD) and the Minority Corporate Counsel Association's Firm Affiliate Network (MCCA's FAN). In addition to posting lateral opportunities with the MCCA and participating in the LCLD 1L Scholars program, Ice Miller attorneys regularly participate in several regional programs offered by the LCLD and MCCA each year.
The Firm has a rich tradition of encouraging generous contributions of time and talent to assist individuals and organizations in need of legal assistance.
