Leaning Out: The Associates Survey '13 (The American Lawyer)

Postby IAFG » Tue Sep 17, 2013 1:49 pm

I don't think the full text is available online but I am sure other people have copies.

"Several female associates at the New York office of a California-based law firm... expressed incredulity that there was only one female partner in New York (in an office that has more than 100 lawyers). That sentiment was shared BJ an associate at the San Francisco office of another Am Law 100 firm, who wrote: 'It is unacceptable to have an office without any female partners, [and] where no female associate has children."

"'The partners who do not have families should have greater respect for the associate[s] who do... Partners who evaluate associates for partnership track should not seek mere clones of themselves.'"

"'The L.A. office does not have a single Hispanic or Latin attorney (in L.A.!). And only one female partner across all practice groups."

Considering non-NLJ350 firms made the list of best firms, they must have been pretty thorough.
