The Careerist is putting on her dangling gypsy earrings, donning her magicalrobe, and peering once again into her crystal ball to see what awaits the legalprofession for the year. Here are her predictions for 2013:

1. Working from home will become de rigueur. Because if you don’t waste timechanging out of your pajamas, taking showers, and schlepping to work, you canincrease billables by at least 1.6 hours a day.

2. Women affinity groups willincrease exponentially. There will be groups for women onpartnership track, women who are just grateful to have a job, women whomust work, women who have rich husbands, women who nurse, women who secretlydon’t nurse, etc.
