Yale Law Women (YLW) named Kirkland to its 2015 Top 10 Family Friendly Firms list. The annual list is a policy survey of Vault 100 law firms that examines family-friendliness indicators such as part-time and flex-time options, caregiver leave policies and childcare availability, as well as indicators of gender equality in partnership promotions and composition of leadership committees.

Kirkland was also selected for category honors in Family Leave: Highest Number of Weeks Offered for Both Primary and Secondary Caregiver Leave; Family Leave: Equal Access to Parental Leave, Regardless of Gender or Primary/Secondary Caregiver Status; and Family Leave: Highest Percentage of Men Partners and Associates Taking Caregiver Leave. Kirkland was previously honored as a Top 10 Family Friendly Firm in 2008, 2010, 2011 and 2014.
