The 2020 ABA Profile of the Legal Profession presents a dismal picture for female lawyers. Roughly half of all law school graduates have been female since 2000, but the number of women in senior leadership roles at U.S. law firms is far less than half. At U.S. law firms women’s pay lags far behind pay for men in similar positions. Sadly, this gap grows wider the further up the corporate ladder women go, and it is even more dramatic for women of color in the field. Not surprisingly female lawyers are less satisfied with their jobs than men. In this mini-seminar we will discuss why this occurs and connect with female lawyers across the country to learn how they overcame these realities to succeed in life and the law.
