The National Association of Women Lawyers today released the results of its third annual National Survey on the Status of Women in Law Firms. The report finds significant disparities between men and women in the number and compensation of partners in large law firms:
- 48% of associates, 27% of non-equity partners, and 16% of equity partners, are women
- At 99% of the firms, the highest-paid partner is a man
- Women earn less than their male counterparts at the associate ($7,000), of-counsel ($14,000), nonequity partner ($23,000), and equity partner ($87,000) levels.
