Breaking insights from the 2020 Equity Project Study: General Counsel and the gender gap in law (Europe)

History suggests that it is exactly at times like these that we need more women in leadership positions, including in law.

In this hour long webcast, Partner at Boies Schiller Flexner and former Head of Litigation Investigations & Enforcement for Barclays Tracey Dovaston and Burford's Elizabeth Fisher discuss breaking insights from the 2020 Equity Project study: General Counsel and the gender gap in law, novel research featuring interviews with 75 leading GCs and in-house lawyers from around the world. 

The report, aimed at better understanding why the gender pay gap persists in the legal industry and how it might be closed, approaches the problem by focusing on the role of economic levers—particularly those available to companies. The webcast addresses the top findings from the research and make recommendations regarding the ways law firms and legal departments can work individually and collaboratively to create gender parity in the business of law.

  • Top obstacles facing women lawyers, from the perspective of in-house counsel
