The Missing Ingredient for Women Lawyers


The Demographic Pyramid

Numerous surveys and studies verify that the demographic profile of women in the legal profession is in the shape of a pyramid.

At the middle of the pyramid, in large law firms, women typically constitute 40% or more of all associates - well above a decade or two ago. However, the pyramid culminates in a narrow peak: women are no more than 20% of the partners at most large firms, and hold an even smaller percentage of senior firm or practice management positions.
