We have come a long way from the “traditional” nuclear family stereotype where the husband is the breadwinner, and the wife is the homemaker. Today, that dichotomy has mostly been replaced by a partnership, where most households have two working parents. Each contributes to the family income and sharing in parenting.
Most attorneys have the benefit of some paid parental leave. However, it is important to review potential firms’ parental leave policies. It’s also imperative to gain an understanding of the firm’s culture as it relates to parental leave policies. Do firms support attorneys and encourage them to take their full leave, or will they feel pressured to return before their allotted leave has concluded?
Work-life balance is becoming less and less of a gender issue. A lot of large firms are realizing that the combination of a huge starting salary and a huge billable-hours requirement isn’t working as well as it used to when it comes to recruiting new associates.
An important discussion is to also be had around the concept of burnout while juggling a professional career, and parenting duties and responsibilities.
What are some habits you can work on to improve efficiency and minimize bad time habits? What are some things you can do to help you efficiently handle the multiple things on your to-do list? Is it setting up as much automation at work as you can? Is it scheduling of self-care time and family time?
Listen to these experienced attorneys that have been in the throes of parenting while managing a successful legal career. This is a program you do not want to miss!
