On the basis of over 100 interviews with women lawyers, most of them graduates of the Harvard Law School, and with pointed examples from their careers, Harrington has written an immensely useful analysis that pinpoints key issues holding women back in a predominantly male profession. Must reading for every woman in the midst of--or contemplating--a career in the law.

Review: Women Lawyers: Rewriting the Rules

User Review  - Sybil Gelin - Goodreads

Extremely well-written. Refreshing to read about women who find the practice of law to be anything but a "liberating" experience. As a woman who plans to go to law school in a couple years, I'd definitely recommend this as a must-read for all law school/lawyer hopefuls (of both sexes). Read full review
