Flexibility in Canadian Law Firms

2005 – 2006

The Flexibility in Canadian Law Firms series is Catalyst’s contribution to law firm’s efforts to address work-life balance issues among their lawyers.

A web-based survey was fielded to lawyers in more than 100 Canadian law firms in the fall of 2003. More than 1,400 lawyers participated in the survey, including 846 associates. Qualitative data from interviews and focus groups with men and women lawyers provides supplemental data points and context.
