Precedent Winter 2009All of the stories in the winter 2009 issue of Precedent are available online.

Our cover story, “O mother, where art thou?,” examines how taking parental leave affects a lawyer’s ability to excel, and what recent pro-family policy changes and proposals in the legal community will do to address the lack of women partners at Canadian firms.

Plus, don’t miss:

We’re also excited about our upcoming guest blogs. Once a week in December, lawyer and new mom Christina Litz will reflect on how life with her son, Archer, compares to her career as a lawyer, and FMC’s Melissa Ghislanzoni will take us to Botswana for a glimpse into her time spent volunteering through the Leave For Change program as a legal advisor in the rewriting of the constitution of the San people.
