Students prescribe strict code for top firms

A law student group is intent on using its collective bargaining power and impeccable top law school credentials to force law firms into a strict new code of ethics and principles.

Despite a decimated job market and decreased job options for graduates, a law student group from the US is intent on using its collective bargaining power and impeccable top law school credentials to force law firms into a strict new code of ethics and principles. 


Billable hour requirements, diversity and a commitment to pro bono work are high on the list for the Building a Better Legal Profession group. 


The group of 50 students from Harvard, Yale, Columbia, Stanford and other premier schools gathered at Stanford Law School last weekend in a two-day national conference for student leaders. They hopes to help students select firms that best align with the group's values, one member said.
