Women in the city

A recent survey shows that women comprise as little as 24% of partnership at the average
commercial law firm in the UK. However, the number of woman pursuing training contracts and
qualifying in the legal profession has grown immensely, so why do the partnership levels remain so
As little as 2 out of 100 law firms that were surveyed have a partnership with more than 50% women
So why is that the more and more woman are qualifying into the profession, however, their
demographic isn’t evenly represented in roles of high seniority. This obviously reflects that gender
equality is still a big issue which needs to be addressed in the profession.
Women are still been discriminated against for reason of maternity and wanting to juggle a
professional and family life.
