Women Law Partners: 17% Is Not Good Enough!

 
 

“Why Do So Few Women Reach the Top of Big Law Firms?”

Writer Timothy L. O’Brien poses that question in today’s New York Times (Sunday, March 19, 2006). The article explores the various reasons why women, although nearly 50% of law school graduates, remain in disproportionately low numbers in law firm partnerships. I touched on this issue earlier this week in a speech I gave for Women’s History Month at the Federal Triangle Partnership in the Reagan Building.

What can we do about this? I’d like to hear from you, and will post the best ideas. In particular, I hope our Trinity Alumnae Lawyers can send in some comments on their experiences at law firms. Just click on the little envelope below or “comments” link in the upper right corner of this page, or send me an email at president@trinitydc.edu Watch this page for more on this topic!
