Introduction

This research guide lists and describes various materials for researching topics relating to women in the legal profession, and is primarily intended for students enrolled in the Gender in the Legal Profession seminar. The sources listed are available freely online or available in print or electronically from the Thurgood Marshall Law Library.  Use of subscription databases listed in this research guide is limited to affiliated law faculty, staff and students. 

Getting Started

There are several resources for researching topics relating to gender in the legal profession.  However, three excellent resources for getting started are:

A Current Glance at Women in the Law / American Bar Association, Commission on Women in the Profession. A Current Glance at Women in the Law is a short annual report that compiles various statistics relating to gender equality in the legal profession. 

The Unfinished Agenda: Women and the Legal Profession (2001) / by Deborah L. Rhode & ABA Commission on Women in the Profession. This is a report prepared for the ABA Commission on Women in the Profession. While the report is somewhat dated, it is widely recognized for providing a comprehensive review of the problems and progress women face regarding equality in the legal profession.

Women in the World's Legal Professions (2003) / by Ulrike Schultz & Gisela Shaw.  This book presents articles, research, and essays from authors around the world in order to evaluate the situation of women in the legal profession in both common and civil law countries.  Countries represented include: the United States of America, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, England, Israel, Germany, the Netherlands, Poland, Finland, France, Italy, Brazil, Korea, and Japan.
