Family Friendly Law Firms
Two separate sources have examined the family friendless of top law firms recently, reports the ABA Journal, although the results do not necessarily agree. Working Mother magazine has picked their top fifty firms, based on “their workforce profile, family-friendly benefits and policies, flexibility, leadership, compensation, and their advancement and retention of women, among other factors.” (You can also look at the shorter ABA Journal write up.) The second voice on the subject comes from the women of Yale Law School. Their survey of the top 100 firms evaluated flexibility of time, leave options, and promotion (among other things) and came up with their own list of the top ten family friendly firms. Yale Law Women lauds a trend towards family and gender parity, but also sees a lot more work to be done. Go take a look!
