Freshfields Moves to Swell Ranks of Women Partners

27th July - Freshfields has introduced a pilot mentoring scheme for senior female associates in order to boost its ranks of women partners...

Six female senior associates from departments across the firm will take part in the pilot, as part of the "Strategic Excellence Leadership Programme". It should be rolled out more widely if the scheme proves a success.

Billed as focussing on career development and how to be a role model and positive influence, the pilot will include two one day workshops and regular sessions with a senior partner mentor. Senior associates will also take part in monthly hour long coaching sessions with consultancy firm Aspire, which specialises in women's development, according to the Lawyer.

The ECJ ruled in November 1997 that positive sex discrimination in favour of female candidates for job promotion is not necessarily contrary to EC law ( Marschall v Land Nordrhein-Westfalen 2001 ICR 45, ECJ case C-409/95).
