Guide for women choosing a firm
« on: November 18, 2006, 11:04:23 AM »
Hey all,
   I wanted to share some info about a law firm guide called Presumed Equal that I stumbled across - it's like Vault, ranking firms and using quotes from attorneys, but it's geared toward women.  It asks questions about part-time, advancement prospects for women, mentoring, firm leadership, etc.  It's a huge book and includes over a 100 firms, but I found it really helpful in learning more about each firm in which I'm interested on these topics.  Has anyone else seen it?  It was written by two Harvard Law students and is available at www.presumedequal.com.  Happy choosing!
~ Jen

Yes, I am sure we should all run out and read a book about law careers for women that was written by two students who have been practicing law for all of one year... Surely they have all of the answers about the ins and outs of the profession in their 365 days of practice.
