If you’re a woman lawyer, you’re twice as likely to leave your profession as your male peers.

That fact has nothing to do with how passionate you are about the law or how good you are at practicing it. In fact, over 75% of women truly enjoy working in the law and feel deeply committed to their work.

That doesn’t change the more depressing numbers: women lawyers are more likely to be passed over for partner, more likely to be seen as less talented, and more likely to feel that they don’t have enough time.  

It doesn’t have to be this way.  

Women face a unique set of challenges as lawyers, and few firms offer any means of addressing those issues. As women, we’re expected not only to excel in the workplace, but to manage families and households with the same efficiency and devotion we bring to the law.

And we want to – we believe in having fulfilling personal lives at the same time that we’re bringing our A-game to the office. We’re certain that if we just had a better process, we could climb the career ladder without having to compromise our happiness.

If you truly want to do it all, you’ve come to the right place.

Women Lawyers Online is an exclusive online resource designed to address both sides of the challenge of being a woman lawyer in today’s world. Kendra Brodin, CEO and Founder of Women Lawyers Online and longtime consultant on the subject of the attraction, retention, and advancement of women attorneys, has been privately offering her expertise to individuals and law firms. Through Women Lawyers Online, she’s helping even more women lawyers nationwide eliminate the challenges that keep them from excelling in the law.

You’re at the office working on a challenging, fascinating case, yet you’re distracted by concerns that you’re not spending enough time at home. Or you’re at home playing with your kids or having dinner with your spouse, and you can’t help but think of the massive pile of briefs on your desk that you face in the morning.

You want to excel in both these worlds. When you’re at the office, you want to give everything you have to your work. When you’re at home, you want to leave your work behind and enjoy yourself. And it’s possible. You just need the right mindset, a better set of professional and personal management tools, and a network of people just like yourself: women who are devoted to being better lawyers and better people.

It’s more than having it all. It’s about having what matters. A fulfilling life and an amazing legal career.

If you focus solely on your career, your personal life is going to suffer. If you focus solely on your personal goals, you’re not going to develop as a respected lawyer nearly as quickly. We think you shouldn’t have to make a choice between giving your attention to one or the other – in fact, we know women lawyers succeed best when both of these essential facets of their lives complement one another.

Join a group of women who know that they can shatter the statistics that say they can’t do it all. Women who choose not to neglect one facet of themselves in favor of another. Women who know that their professional and personal lives need to develop and succeed simultaneously to bring them ultimate satisfaction, both in the office and at home.

Your firm wants better women lawyers. Show them what you’ve got.

Every smart law firm in the country wants to see its women lawyers succeed. They want to attract, retain, and, ideally, advance the promising women lawyers that they bring into their firms. They simply don’t have the tools or the resources to address these challenges in-house. Firms have often had their support structures in place for dozens of years, and they usually fail to reflect the challenges women face.

That doesn’t mean they’re not willing to address them. Only that you need to make it easy for them. Show your firm’s decision-makers what comes with Women Lawyers Online (including all the monthly education credits included in membership) and they’ll instantly see the benefits: more focus and discipline in the workplace, improved efficiency and leadership, up-to-the-minute education and expertise, and happier, better performing lawyers overall.

It’s a career boost for you and a smart investment for them. Become an individual member or encourage your firm to become a member so all of the women lawyers in your firm can benefit. Start working toward becoming not only a better lawyer, but a better person. Or point them toward our Firm Discount Rates to get every woman in your firm on board, and you’ll find you’re not alone in facing these challenge – or in tackling them.
