Whats the representation in biglaw/midlaw, if any, of Muslim women that wear a headscarf? How much harder is it for them in the recruitment process provided they are competitive (top 15%, T14,LR,multiple languages)? Lastly, what concerns would recruiters have regarding such women and how can these women best address them?
Thanks for any input
I can't speak industry wide on what this representation is - simply don't know. A headscarf would not present any issues I can think of in the recruitment process. A firm is going to look at your qualifications and if you have the right personality fit with the attorneys.
