Female law students entering the recruiting season now have another weapon for their interviewing arsenal: a list of the 50 U.S. firms deemed most woman friendly.

The inaugural 2007 Best Law Firms for Women list, a joint venture between Working Mother magazine and Flex-Time Lawyers, LLC, was the result of a national survey of approximately 200 law firms. According to survey co-creator Deborah Epstein Henry, founder and president of Flex-Time Lawyers, the hundreds of questions helped narrow the results to firms that were exceptional in their woman-friendly policies and practices.
