The number of male attorneys arguing at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit continues to greatly surpass women, according to a study published by the American Bar Association this week.

The study’s authors, Seventh Circuit Judge Amy J. St. Eve and Munger, Tolles & Olson associate Jamie Luguri, found that women represented 24% of attorneys who argued before the Chicago, Illinois-based federal appeals court in 2009. In 2019, the percentage rose only slightly to 28%.
