WASHINGTON, DC, October 30, 2013 — The share of women among new partner classes at major law firms gained only one percentage point in the last year.

Data for over 100 of the nation’s largest law firms are detailed in the report, including members of the Alliance and many among the The American Lawyer 100 (AmLaw 100) ranks.
