My new article in Above The Law is entitled “Can Women Lawyers Ever Find Equality In Biglaw?

It begins:

“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?

Of course.

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).”

“Is this the way it really is in BigLaw?”


I then discuss the “grinding factory” that is BigLaw.
