Just over a third of the U.S. lawyers promoted to partner by the country’s largest firms in the past year were female, according to a new study released by a group called the Diversity & Flexibility Alliance.

(The report examined promotion announcements effective 2015 by roughly three-quarters of The Am Law 100.) That’s up two percentage points from the group’s findings last year, and about level with findings in 2010 and 2013, the Alliance said.
