Stephanie Scharf Co-Authors ABA Report on “Practicing Law in the Pandemic and Moving Forward”

Partner Stephanie Scharf, in collaboration with Roberta Liebenberg,  conducted and reported on a nationwide survey of thousands of lawyers in all practice settings about their adjustment to work in the pandemic,  their expectations for moving forward, and what policies and practices are essential for working effectively and individual well-being.  Sponsored by the American Bar Association, "Practicing Law in the Pandemic and Moving Forward," has special sections on the experiences of women and lawyers of color, how law firms and corporate law departments adjusted to their multi-faceted challenges, and new work practices and supportive environments going forward.  Using the full range of data, the Report concludes with recommended  best practices for legal employers as they plan for the challenges of the future. 

Please contact Stephanie Scharf for more information about the policies and practices that will help firms and companies move forward.  A copy of the report is here.
