Assimilation, Choice, or Constraint? Testing Theories of Gender Differences in the Careers of Lawyers.
Hull, Kathleen E.; Nelson, Robert L.
Social Forces, v79 n1 p229-64 Sep 2000
Gender is strongly related to career outcomes among Chicago lawyers. Men and women begin their careers in difference practice contexts, and the differences grow over time. Individual preferences do not fully account for the gender gap. Law school prestige and class rank influence career paths but do not explain the gender gap. (Contains 85 references.) (Author/SV)
