PAR Launches Membership Program

Today, PAR began a membership program for law firms. Twenty-three firms have signed up as Founding Members, and more have expressed interest in joining in the coming months. Membership in PAR gives the firms a number of benefits: the ability to support PAR's research; a complimentary review of their part-time policies by PAR's expert staff; a teleconference for their attorneys who are working reduced hours about how to advance professionally; tickets to PAR's upcoming conference; and a copy of Joan and Cynthia's book, Solving the Part-Time Puzzle: The Law Firm's Guide to Balanced Hours (NALP 2004). Sustaining members also get advance briefings of PAR's new research and a teleconference by one of PAR's experts for their firms on a topic of their choosing related to work/life or advancement of women attorneys. More information about the program is on PAR's website.
