//  3/29/18  //  Quick Reactions

I have a piece out in the March/April/May 2018 issue of the ABA Journal for law students.  The intro starts this way:

Parity between men and women in the legal profession is an aspiration. It’s not reality, at least not yet. I wish I’d have understood that in law school because hearing that there’s parity when there’s none can be maddening.

I also wish I would have known about the resources available to people who want to do something about the lack of parity in our profession.

You can read the entire piece here.  It's not all bleak, but I also didn't want to sugarcoat things...
