Percentage of women associates falling

NALP says data shows a “significant and troubling trend”

Despite the fact that women now hold one-third of all jobs in the U.S. legal industry, the actual percentage of women associates is falling, according to new data from NALP, the Association for Legal Career Professionals.

The NALP reports that the total percent change in women partners over the past two decades has been “marginal.” In 1993, women accounted for 12.27 percent of law firm partners; in 2012, they comprised 19.91 percent of law firm partners.
