We take a close look at the culmination of factors that drive women attorneys out of Big Law and—importantly—how to stem the exodus. Law.com reporter Dylan Jackson talks with Michelle Browning Coughlin, a partner at Wyatt Tarrant & Combs who is also the founder of the Mothers Esquire, a nonprofit group focused on advancing women in the legal profession. They discuss a recent study by Law.com affiliate ALM Intelligence and American Bar Association, which found a huge gender divide when it comes to lawyers' satisfaction with their firm's operations and policies for women’s advancement.
