Sex Discrimination in the Legal Profession: A Study of Promotion.
Spurr, Stephen J.
Industrial and Labor Relations Review, v43 n4 p406-17 Apr 1990
Presents evidence of discrimination against women in promotion to partnership in major U.S. law firms in 1969-73 and 1980. Findings indicate that women were about one-half as likely as men to achieve partnership even though they did not significantly differ from men in academic distinction, law school rank, or productivity.
