Fewer female lawyers aspire for leadership positions than male lawyers

Fewer female lawyers harbour aspirations to be in leadership positions than male lawyers, a new study in the UK has found.
Among female lawyers, the leading reason is “no route or room for progression” (27%), followed by “work-life balance” (26%), and “stress” (16%). Other reasons identified by female lawyers were “’glass ceiling’ or unacknowledged barrier to advancement” (10%), “satisfied at current level” (7%), and “lack of flexible working opportunities” (4%). There were 3% of female lawyers that said they have “been there, done that.”
