Women lawyers in New Jersey are more likely to quit if their law firm does not have flexible work arrangements and they are gravitating toward firms that do, says a new survey of female lawyers across the state. Women "are no longer willing to stay and 'get along,'" says the study, conducted by a New Jersey state agency in conjunction with Rutgers University's Center for Women and Work. The report ends with a series of "best practices" recommendations for improving retention of female lawyers.
