A peek at State Bar survey (access required)

With men holding 3-to-2 membership edge, the question surfaces: Are women leaving because the legal profession doesn't offer sufficient work-life balance?

The North Carolina State Bar hopes that all of its 24,000-plus members will complete a first-ever voluntary survey on age, gender, race and ethnicity in the state's legal community. So far, 14,536 responses have been received - not a bad start, if you ask Bar officials. "We feel pretty good about the information collected at this point," Alice Neece Mine, the State Bar's assistant director, said last week. As of last week, the State Bar had tabulated results for 8,723, or 60 percent, of the responses it had received, said Tammy Jackson, the Bar's membership director. All of those were online responses to emailed surveys, Jackson said, adding that the other 5,813 responses were paper surveys sent to members who didn't respond to one of three email blasts from the Bar.
