Leaving Big Law


This would be more accurate if the woman were in front (Photo credit: kylemac)


I just read this article in Above the Law. It shows the departure memo of a young woman leaving her job at a big law firm (“Big Law”) because she is unable to “juggle” (I hate that word) her job and parenthood responsibilities. It is exhausting and heartbreaking. I have so many thoughts about this that I will need to write a full post about it. But for now, I’m just grateful I got out before Girl 1 was born.
