Caren Ulrich Stacy's Summary

Caren has more than 20 years of experience in lawyer recruitment, development, and diversity with law firms across the country, including Arnold & Porter, Weil, Gotshal & Manges, Cooley, McGuireWoods, and Jenkens & Gilchrist. She has advised more than 60 AmLaw 200 firms and legal departments on lawyer hiring, integration, training, satisfaction, retention, performance, diversity, and advancement.


After working in law school career services and at major law firms for two decades, Caren founded a successful consulting firm in 2009. She then partnered with other industry experts in late 2010 to form Lawyer Metrics. As a co-founder and investor, Caren worked with specialists in legal labor markets, quantitative analysis, and organizational psychology to design and implement a data-driven, Moneyball approach to lawyer hiring and development.

She also facilitated ground-breaking research to better understand the traits and behaviors of successful lawyers, including rainmakers. Caren stepped down as President of Lawyer Metrics in late 2013 to create and manage the OnRamp Fellowship -- the first "Returnship" for women lawyers ever launched in the legal profession.
