A group of Heller Ehrman lawyers is making bold recommendations -- including doing away with the billable hour -- to keep women from leaving their law firm careers.
Countering what has become known as the "opt-out revolution," in which women ditch corporate America mid-career to be homemakers, the attorneys created what they call the opt-in project.
Don't get me wrong--I'm all for women having careers and doing well. But, how about axing the billable hour because it would make all our lives better? Man, woman, child, client, associate, etc?
