Susan DeSantis’ article “Lawyers, Increasingly Busy With Billable Hours, Look to Delay Childbearing by Freezing Embryos and Eggs” raises an important issue for attorneys in their childbearing years. When I was a law student at Cardozo Law School, there was a panel discussion with women from all stages of their career and varying legal careers regarding the “best” time to have children.
