Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
There are fewer and fewer women joining the ranks of BigLaw firms these days - at least according to a new survey by the National Association of Women Lawyers (NAWL).
For in-house counsel everywhere, this marked shift in the gender makeup of large law firms begs the question: what will happen to the hiring pool?
Many corporations source their legal talent from BigLaw firms. With fewer women entering the associate ranks (47% of first and second year associates are women, down from 48% in past years), there may be a shift coming soon to your company.

Of course, it would be interesting to see what kind of statistics there are on the makeup of the ranks of in house counsel and legal staff at corporations.
The numbers seem to indicate that women in BigLaw don't get the same equal treatment as men, at least according to the NAWL survey. But perhaps they'd fare better in a corporate environment.
