Miriam Kim Discusses Women in Law

Munger, Tolles & Olson litigator Miriam Kim shared her perspectives on women in the legal profession in a roundtable article published on March 14, 2016 by Law Practice Today. Ms. Kim and other roundtable participants discussed their experiences as women in law and answered questions ranging from trends impacting the future of legal practice to advice for aspiring lawyers.

In addressing how issues for female lawyers have changed positively throughout practice, Ms. Kim wrote, “The work-life balance dialogue has become more public and prominent during my career…In order to have a real impact on female lawyers, however, both women and men must take advantage of policies like parental leave and reduced hours and suffer no adverse consequences for doing so.”

Ms. Kim also cited the influence of several legal role models, including fellow Munger Tolles litigators Carolyn Hoecker Luedtke and Gregory P. Stone, as well as prominent members of the Asian American Bar Association of the Greater Bay Area.
