Vault is a comprehensive resource for employer, university and internship program rankings, ratings and insight. Vault’s rankings and reviews are sourced from directed surveys of professionals and students, and evaluate companies, schools and internships in terms of prestige, best place to work, diversity, quality of life, compensation and other categories.

Vault developed the Top 150 Under 150 as a resource for students and lateral candidates seeking an experience outside of larger law firms. To determine the Top 150 Under 150, Vault developed a list of the best-known and most sought-after U.S. firms with fewer than 150 attorneys. Vault’s editorial and research teams analyzed Vault survey data, news stories, trade journals and other legal publications; spoke with lawyers in the field, and reviewed other published rankings.
