Work-Life Balance in Firms

Click the title to this post to read a nice, brief article from Sunday's Boston Globe about what law firms are doing to help keep younger associates, especially women, in the firm. The article notes many of the large firms are offering 12 - 18 weeks of leave for primary caregivers (like maternity or paternity leave, but more flexible). Also notes that the culture of the firm must also back up the policy, so that folks who take the leave aren't stigmatized.
