Can Women Lawyers Ever Find Equality In Biglaw?
My new article in Above The Law is entitled “Can Women Lawyers Ever Find Equality In Biglaw?”
“Hey — who cares if Biglaw is white and male as long as it can charge $2,000 per hour (or more). It’s all about the money, after all. Isn’t it?
As long as the profits keep rolling in, why should Biglaw care about gender equality? Yeah, I know – clients are starting to demand it; let’s see what happens. (The CEO of United Airlines probably had a similar lack of concern the other day about the passenger dragged off one of his planes, until the PR nightmare hit).”
I then discuss the “grinding factory” that is BigLaw.
