VBA Conference on labor relations and employment law on sexism in the law

Two female litigators and one female judge, from different stages in life and on various tracks in their careers, took a candid look at the landscape for women lawyers/judges in top positions at law firms and businesses nationally. This session explored causes for, and possibilities for relief from, the still surprisingly male-dominated upper bastions of the legal profession. The panelists shared the results of a recent survey of female litigators, and tackled the subject of “implicit” bias.
