Law School Recruiting
Manko, Gold, Katcher & Fox maintains relationships with law schools in the greater Philadelphia area and participates in on-campus recruiting at several schools. We conduct screening interviews both on campus and in our office, meeting with 1L candidates in the spring and 2L candidates in the fall. Please work with your law school career services office to submit your resume and schedule an interview.
We are also happy to receive resumes directly from 1Ls and 2Ls interested in joining our summer associate program. Send your resume with a letter of interest and a law school transcript to our hiring partner whose contact information is listed on this page.
MGKF recognizes the need to promote and embrace diversity in the areas of race, ethnicity, gender, age, mental/physical abilities, and sexual orientation. One-third of our partners as well as one-third of all lawyers in the firm are female. Two of our attorneys are members of a minority group.
MGKF has been named a Law360 “Ceiling Smasher” and was ranked 23rd nationally for its percentage of women in the partnership based on firms with less than 100 attorneys. While many law firms’ partnership ranks are still dominated by men, MGKF’s female partners account for nearly 35 percent of the partnership.
Law360’s 2020 Glass Ceiling Report found that women make up 37 percent of all attorneys, but just 25 percent of partners nationally. At the top level of a typical U.S. law firm, women account for only 22 percent of equity partners, but at MGKF 38.9 percent of the equity partners are female, which landed the firm in 8th place for firms with 20-50 attorneys.
In addition, we are proud members of the Philadelphia Diversity Law Group (PDLG) and actively participate in PDLG's Fellows Program, the goal of which is to increase the number of lawyers of diverse backgrounds working at Philadelphia area law firms.
