When Chicago-Kent law professor Felice Batlan surveyed 142 legal secretaries at larger law firms in 2009, not one expressed a preference for working with a female partner.This is the lede in a recent article in the ABA Journal.
While the mismatch in pay between men and women is smoothing out, other things, apparently, are not. With the economy in the condition it is, problems like this are going to be smothered under the larger issue of employment. I understand lawyers have one of the lowest unemployment rates—2.1%, but there is quibbling.
