2021 Members Meeting – Parker Analytics Resources

Below, please find meeting resources from Parker Analytics related to topics covered during the presentation and panel discussions. A recording of the meeting will also be available soon to view on our Members Only page.


Parker Analytics Talent Selection Algorithm
The Parker Analytics Talent Selection Algorithm (TSA) empowers law firms to use empirical and quantitative evidence to advance equitable talent selection. The TSA increases the share of high performing lawyers, retention of entry level and lateral hires, and the number of women attorneys and attorneys from underrepresented demographics.

The TSA process is non-invasive. Time-of-hire success, retention, and practice area inclination predictions are based on a firm’s historical data and sophisticated statistical models and reflect the firm’s unique culture. Relying on TSA predictions gives recruiting teams confidence in expanding conventional selection criteria.As part of the TSA process, Parker Analytics identifies historical asymmetries in the business system that adversely impact underrepresented groups. The final TSA is designed to mitigate asymmetries and provide equitable predictions that increase the share of high performing lawyers hired from underrepresented demographics.

Malcolm Gladwell discusses the Parker Analytics TSA with Founder, Evan Parker, on his Revisionist Podcast here.


Parker Analytics Diversity Scorecard
The Parker Analytics Diversity Scorecard was developed in response to the commitment of Corporate Legal Departments to increase the diversity of external teams providing legal services.

Legal Departments who use the Parker Analytics Diversity Scorecard increase the number of diverse relationship partners, share of diverse lawyers doing high-quality legal work, diverse representation in firmwide leadership positions, and diversity firmwide.

The Parker Analytics proprietary legal industry data set – the largest of its kind – allows comparison of firms in the context of all legal service providers and the broader legal market. Legal Departments engage law firm leaders in objective and collaborative dialogue about diversity at their firm, establish priority action items and evaluate progress on an annual basis.

The Parker Analytics Diversity Scorecard was named an Innovation in Diversity by the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity and is the subject of Harvard Law School Case Study.
