"Why are mother lawyers so unhappy? Why do they leave the profession? Do they really ‘want’ to leave, or do they feel pushed out? Are they happy once they do leave? Do they hope to return to the profession? What will it take for them to return? What, if anything, would have prevented them from leaving in the first place? How have those who do ‘opt out’ been able to afford that decision – especially in light of their often crushing student loans? This blawg will examine these questions, and hopes to become a gathering spot for all mother-lawyers."
