As you might suspect, the issue of women in the legal profession is near to my heart. If I had my way, the fact that a major firm has a female managing or deputy managing partner wouldn’t be notable. Nor would a female general counsel of a Fortune 500 company. Heck, in my dream world there wouldn’t even be a need for a monthly column addressing the concerns of women in the legal profession.

But we’re a long, long way from achieving that goal.
