The Project for Attorney Retention (PAR) works to reduce unwanted attrition among lawyers -- beneficial for both legal employers and the lawyers themselves -- by promoting the use of reduced hours schedules and the advancement of women lawyers. Its web site, www.attorneyretention.org, includes information for lawyers and law firms about non-stigmatized part-time programs, best practices for retaining lawyers, and how part-time really works at different firms.
