In the Nov. 3 issue, the chart ranking the 30 largest firms by percentage of their D.C. lawyers who are women (Page 25) contained numerous errors. A companion article (“Breaking Into the Boys Club,” Page 1) also contained errors. Corrected versions of the chartand the articleappear in this edition on Pages 19 and 17, respectively. Both are also posted on the Web at law.com/dc. Because of the calculation errors, the original article incorrectly reported that Swidler Berlin Shereff Friedman had the lowest percentage of women lawyers in the District, and that the percentage of women lawyers in its D.C. office had dropped since 1994. In fact, Swidler does not have the lowest percentage, and has a higher percentage of women today than it did in 1994. The article incorrectly stated the percentage of women lawyers and partners at Wiley Rein & Fielding in 2003. The correct numbers are 29.1 percent and 17 percent, respectively. The percentage of women lawyers at Jones Day was incorrect; the firm’s lawyers in D.C. are 36.7 percent female. And the percentage of women lawyers at O’Melveny & Myers was incorrect; the accurate number is 31.5 percent. In addition, Legal Timesfailed to solicit responses from Howrey Simon Arnold & White and Steptoe & Johnson to criticism by former associates. A responsefrom Howrey appears this week in Letters (Page 61) and in the corrected story. Comments from Steptoe also appear in the corrected story. Finally, the article mischaracterized comments by employment lawyer Lynne Bernabei about law firm workplaces. She argues that the law firm environment is hostile to women and sometimes meets the legal standard of a hostile work environment. In the same issue, the chartof minority lawyers at D.C. firms (Page 28) incorrectly reported the percentage of minority partners at Howrey Simon Arnold & White. It is 6.3 percent. Also on Nov. 3, ” Courtside” incorrectly reported the background of Abbe Gluck, a clerk to Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Gluck was a visiting professor at Brooklyn Law School. We regret the errors. The corrections have been made to the Web versions of the articles and the charts.
