The hiring and retention of female attorneys is a continuing concern in the legal community. Additionally, there has been talk in the legal community of a generational conflict between senior women attorneys and their younger counterparts.

The editors at The Legal and the Law Weekly selected the panelists, moderated the discussion and edited the transcript.
