An interesting story at the DC Examiner, about the results of a study from the National Association for Law Placement:

Female partners in DC law firms are taking part-time hours at nearly three times the rate that men are, a new study has found.There are nearly 6,000 partners in 131 big law firm offices in Washington, the nation’s second-largest law market. Less than 5 percent of the partners are part-timers, but women make up nearly three-quarters of the part-time ranks...

Less than 2 percent of New York partners are working part time and of those, about two-thirds are women…


The study suggests that women, even big time professional women laywers, still do the bulk of family care. Fourteen percent of all US workers hold part-time positions, including in the professions of engineering, architecture and medicine.

But lawyers make their money from billable hours, and its almost impossible to make partner if you’re not working every hour you can.
