The  National Association for Law Placement, an organization that provides information on legal employment and recruiting, revealed in their new study that the number of lawyers who are working on a part-time schedule has increased. NALP found that in 2010, 6.4% of lawyers working at large firms nationwide are on part-time schedules. In 2006, the figure was only at 5%. NALP noted that the part-time schedules are mostly dominated by women. Meanwhile, male lawyers have increasingly been reducing their working hours throughout the years.

NALP study also showed that the numbers of part-time lawyers are varying from different cities. Law firms in West Coast cities, including Portland, Seattle, Sacramento, San Diego, and San Francisco have 7% to 9.7% lawyers working on a part-time basis. Chicago and Washington, DC registered about 4.7% while New York City, Austin, New Orleans and Wilmington have less than 1%.

Stephen Vatjay, managing partner of McCarter & English, said that giving lawyers the option to be on a part-time schedule promotes diversity in the workplace and helps the firm to have a degree of parity with its corporate clients. “We believe that our attorney population should reflect society as a whole and the workplace. The flexible schedule program at McCarter enables the firm to retain more of its lawyers. It’s not just about acknowledging that people have other commitments.”
