Staff Attorney Jobs
Staff-attorney jobs are similar to associate jobs. The only difference is that staff attorneys can never become partners. At certain occasions, they work only a few hours and are paid relatively less. Whereas at other times, they perform the same job as other associates.

In light of results of an annual survey conducted by the NAWL Foundation about the retention and promotion of females in law, it has been noted that over 60% of staff attorneys within the Am Law firms are women. This is the uppermost ratio of women attorneys in any practice area. The position of a contract attorney, in accordance with the survey, appears to be split equally among both women and men and more intimately reflects the gender split of graduates from law school. Generally, contract attorneys are recruited by staffing agencies and are paid per project. NAWL, for the first time, endeavored to track whether law firms that employ staff or contract attorneys both had relatively the median percentage of female attorneys recruited for part time jobs. The outcomes revealed large evidence that law firms were employing contract attorneys instead of letting women lawyers work part time, while that was not the matter when it came to staff attorneys.

The survey also questioned the layoffs both last year and now. Most law firms were unwilling to respond. Of those who did respond, more than 90% of the firms had fired attorneys. But, NAWL reported that none of the respondents laid-off equity associates. In fact about 80% of those terminated were associates. The outcomes revealed that women were dismissed proportionally to the percentage of positions they possessed at every seniority level. There has been no major gender impact with regard to the dismissal of full-time attorneys. NAWL reported that women tolerated the impact of part-time attorneys being laid-off, the most.

The evolving structural transformation in law firms, like job expansion at the lower end of the firms, together with the complexity of acquiring credit for the development of business, indicate stagnation or, at best, sustained slow improvement in domains like the statistics and the remuneration of women equity partners.
