Not All Lawyers Are Equal: Difficulties That Plague Women And Women Of Color

Theresa M. Beiner

Many learned authors and organizations have tackled the problems facing women lawyers generally and lawyers of color specifically. The author begins by considering studies, including some very recent ones, focusing on women lawyers and women lawyers of color to see if they provide insight into how these lawyers are faring. And, to the extent that they are having difficulties, the author considers the position that formalism is part of the problem. This article's particular focus is on large law firm practice; the so-called elite of the profession.
