O’Melveny Worldwide


In 2019, O’Melveny became the first US law firm to implement pymetrics, a cutting-edge assessment tool, into our recruiting process. Pymetrics evaluates candidates based on their potential, not their pedigree.

Pymetrics uses a series of objective, behavior-based electronic “games” that measure candidates’ cognitive and emotional traits. Processed by machine learning and audited by artificial intelligence to remove any bias from models, pymetrics offers an objective data point that O’Melveny can consider along with résumés, grades, and interviews.

This additional data point offers new information about candidates’ potential for success at O’Melveny while helping override the implicit biases that naturally seep into traditional recruiting methods.

Pymetrics offers accommodations for ADHD, dyslexia, and color blindness. This option will be available in the pymetrics application before you begin the games. If you need a different accommodation or encounter technical issues, please contact pymetrics@omm.com. Your results are not affected if an accommodation is chosen nor does O’Melveny know you’ve requested or received an accommodation.
