Corporate Law class on Wednesday morning...

My sense is that whatever remains of the era when law was dominated by an "old boys' network" is rapidly drawing to a close: this is the highest-ranked law school in the region, but a substantial majority of my graduating class is female, every single one of my professors this quarter is female, and half of the attorneys supervising my entrepreneurial law clinic (themselves representing some high-end firms) are female.

Also significant is what a non-issue all of this seems to be: I've yet to hear another student comment on it or express surprise over it, and I've yet to hear anyone in my class describe a job hunting or summer employment situation which even hinted at an element of sexism.
