Monica Bay, the editor-in-chief of Law Technology News, discusses the technology changes within the publishing industry and gender equality within the legal profession in this GAL Radio interview. Highlights include....
- So, what we’ve seen is a transition, a very healthy transition in my
mind, to the GC’s having a lot more control over the whole process where
law firms are being forced to operate, instead of like private clubs,
on a much more corporate, much more transparent approach.
- About a year and a half ago, the U.S. Census released a staggering, and
very disappointing figures that showed tremendous gaps in the legal
profession on how we pay our women and our men.
- even among the paralegals, ... it’s something like 97%
women, and yet, with that small percentage of men who are paralegals,
they’re still making more than the women.
- But, it’s unconscionable for our profession, who are leaders for justice
in the rule of law, to have inequities in something as fundamental as
equal pay for equal work. So, I challenge those leaders to walk into
their HR departments and get the information and fix it.
