The Project for Attorney Retention, Interim Report

Joan Williams and Cynthia Thomas Calvert

Effective reduced-hours programs can save law firms millions of dollars through increased retention rates. Permitting attorneys to work fewer hours without stigma can create attorney satisfaction, establish a firm as an employer of choice that cares about diversity, and improve recruiting efforts. Ineffective part-time programs, by contrast, cost firms millions in lost productivity and attrition. They create disillusionment among attorneys, law firm management, and even clients, and tarnish a firm's reputation.
