Art Rooney II, Of Counsel at Buchanan, is mentioned in The Wall Street Journal's article about the firm's participation of the Mansfield Rule pilot project, which adapts the NFL's Rooney Rule to the law industry. Read "Rooney Rule for Law Firms? Project Aims to Promote More Women."

The law firm project comes full circle back to the NFL rule that inspired it: Art Rooney II, the president of the Pittsburgh Steelers and son of the late Dan Rooney, who created the football rule, is also a name partner at Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney, one of the firms participating in the pilot.
