Part-time attorney trends
Although most large law firms make part-time schedules available to their attorneys, very few take advantage of this option, according to NALP. The 2004-2005 NALP Directory of Legal Employers finds that nearly all (96.7%) of the offices in the Directory allow part-time schedules either as an affirmative policy or on a case-by-case basis, but only 3.9% of attorneys reported working part-time, compared to 4.1% in 2003. Associates took greater advantage of part-time schedules than did partners, with 5.1% of associates working part-time, compared with 2.6% of partners. NALP Press Release
