Leading Litigators

How many times have you gone to trial?

Many litigators will happily reflect on their experiences in Court.  It always makes me smile when a litigator’s account of their trial sounds as if he or she were Matlock or Perry Mason acting alone as the sole advocate for their client.  In reality very few attorneys prepare for trial by themselves, but rather have surrounded themselves with a trial team.  Of course every team has a leader.  When it comes to battles in the courtroom, how many trial leaders are female?

I know for many young lawyers participating in a trial is exciting enough, and the idea of leading the battle is a distant (hopefully not too distant) dream.  However, the Philadelphia Business Journal just reported that women are still “significantly underrepresented as lead trial lawyers.”  Do you agree?

How can we make this change?
