The current legal market is one in which law firms big and small are seeking to disrupt and innovate in order to prove their relevance. Given this attitude, why is it that a strong and thick glass ceiling still exists for women as they rise through the ranks of their respective law firms? And why is it that men are not better supported in balancing family and career?
A number of influential women are not afraid to speak out about these ‘unconscious biases’ in the profession. They are seeking to affect change from positions of seniority. But as they tell ECP Legal’s Ilana Orlievsky, affecting such change is not without its challenges.
