Recruiting Diverse Talent
We are committed to recruiting the best and the brightest from diverse backgrounds and perspectives. Members of the Hiring Committee attend minority job fairs and participate in events to meet talented and diverse law students, judicial clerks, and lateral candidates. These include events sponsored by the Black Law Students Association and the career fair at the annual Lavender Law Conference, sponsored by the National Lesbian and Gay Law Association. Our lawyers also regularly visit school campuses, build relationships with student associations, and meet with law students in informal settings to discuss legal careers.
Vorys is proud to be a demonstrated leader in recruiting diverse talent into the legal profession. More than 20 years ago, a partner in our firm co-founded the nationally recognized Minority Clerkship Program sponsored by the Columbus Bar Association. Vorys has established the George Corey Scholarship program in memory of our beloved partner, George Corey, whose immense legal talent, professionalism, and warmth left an indelible mark on the Ohio legal community, and who was passionate about recruiting the best and the brightest from diverse backgrounds and experiences. The program awards a scholarship each year to a minority law student. We also sponsor a scholarship through the Ohio Foundation of Independent Colleges’ (OFIC) Ohio Scholars Program. This scholarship is available to a minority pre-law major from Franklin, Cuyahoga, Hamilton or Summit County who attends one of the 34 OFIC schools.
