There is an old adage, “If you think getting into law school is tough – Try getting out of it!”
Canada has one of the finest legal education and training systems in the world. It is a demanding field and – male or female, much is expected of those whom choose to practice it.
The Canadian Bar Association and its provincial counterparts recognize the extraordinary demands and challenges faced by female lawyers and are proactively studying how to better retain women in law.
In Canada, almost half of students in law school are female and approximately one third of the profession is comprised of women. Still, women are leaving the profession at twice the rate of men. Two primary reasons sited by studies are, 1) Societal Demands of Work/Life Balance and 2) Discrimination.
