For the first time this year, the National Association of Women Lawyers asked firms about key rainmakers -- and found very few were women. And according to NAWL's annual survey, in the four years the survey has been conducted there has been very little change in the data on the relatively small numbers of women in leadership positions and on management committees. "The results are astounding, even to those of us familiar with the dynamics of legal business development," NAWL said in a report on the survey.
