2009 Partner Class: Stagnant for Women Lawyers

In a recent press release, The Project for Attorney Retention reported that Law firms' 2009 partner class shows little progress for women.

The good news is that at 23 of the 100 firms surveyed by the Project for Attorney Retention, the new partner classes were at least 40% female.  The bad news is that the gain is offset by the failure of 14 firms to make any female partners.

The top firms? Cravath (67%), Dickstein Shapiro (67%), Wiley Rein (60%), Andrews Kurth (57%), Bryan Cave (56%), Arent Fox (50%), Baker & Daniels (50%), Hogan & Hartson (50%), Holland and Hart (50%), King and Spalding (50%), Luce Forward (50%), Simpson Thacher (50%),  and Sullivan & Cromwell (50%)
