A struggle lawyers consistently and constantly face is the never-ending work/life balance.  Female attorneys that have children face a new factor to this balance - - how to be a mom and practice law at the same time.  Maternity leave and the transition back to work are often stressful times for female lawyers, but also for the firm or her place of employment.  Retention of women has become an issue for many law firms across the country. This program seeks to offer advice to female attorneys on how to succeed after having children, especially regarding the adjustment back to work.  Also, this program will offer advice to law firms on how to transition women back to work after having children to assist in the retention of female attorneys.
