Our firm is committed to fostering diversity within the San Diego legal community and was one of the first San Diego law firms to partner with the San Diego County Bar Association’s Diversity Fellowship, providing summer law clerk positions to quality diversity fellows. Our firm believes that diversity is good for the legal profession generally and for our firm specifically in making us better able to serve our clients, who themselves operate in and deal with a diverse society. The Diversity Fellowship Program is just one small way to work toward achieving this end and, at the same time, to give back to the profession by providing opportunities to others. Our firm is one of sixteen prestigious firms and companies that provide these opportunities to San Diego law students and has participated in this program for over seven years.
See the articles in San Diego Lawyer in which our Litigation Department Chair, Michael Weinstein, is interviewed regarding Ferris & Britton’s participation within the program.
Our firm is also dedicated to providing opportunities for women in the legal field. Ferris & Britton is a proud member of Lawyers Club of San Diego whose mission is to further the development of female attorneys within the legal community, in-house and through private practice. Our firm participated in the San Diego Business Women’s Mega Mixer in 2014 to recognize business women in the San Diego community and supports the Women in eDiscovery San Diego Chapter that encourages, trains, and empowers women to excel in managing Electronically Stored Information (ESI) within the litigation process. Ferris & Britton is also a proud member and active participant with Executive Women on Influence (EWI) San Diego, a network of professional women that strive to enhance career development, promote networking, and encourage community involvement. The firm supports the Minority Corporate Counsel Association and attends various MCLE programs and conferences.
