Diversity and Inclusion

Holland & Knight seeks to further develop an organization and a culture where all talented individuals – including those traditionally underrepresented in the legal profession – can have, and can see, a path to long-term success.

As part of this mission, we recruit the best legal talent, which necessarily includes those who are traditionally underrepresented. We are committed to supporting a variety of pipeline and recruiting initiatives to continue building a diverse and inclusive law firm and legal profession.


Attorneys in several of our offices, with support from the firm, volunteer their time with diversity pipeline programs, including Legal Outreach, the NALP/Street Law Legal Diversity Pipeline Program and Just the Beginning – A Pipeline Organization.

Throughout the year, we engage with law students across the country. One example is our "Demystifying the Large Firm Practice" event held annually in several of our offices. This informational seminar provides more information about working at a large law firm, including answering some of the following questions:

  • What do firms look for in prospective summer associates?
  • What can I do to strengthen my candidacy?
  • What differentiates one law firm from another?

Holland & Knight attorneys provide insight and input in answering these questions and others about the legal practice. This event is a unique opportunity to learn about associate responsibilities and expectations at law firms.

We have been a member of the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity (LCLD) since its inception. As a member, we participate in the 1L LCLD Scholars Program, which is designed to strengthen the legal pipeline by providing opportunities for underrepresented first-year law students. It provides a rare opportunity for students who have finished their first year of law school to gain valuable professional experience at Holland & Knight.

In addition to the experience of working at our firm, 1L LCLD Scholars also benefit from:

  • participation in the 1L LCLD Scholars Summit
  • mock interview programming
  • a dedicated LinkedIn group for 1L LCLD Scholars
  • 1L LCLD Scholars Program - apply here.
Since 2008, we have annually awarded a scholarship to a first-year law student from Florida A&M University (FAMU) College of Law in addition to providing an opportunity to participate in our summer associate program. This exclusive program provides an opportunity for law students to gain real-world law firm experience working on complex matters.
