The Project for Attorney Retention

We want to thank Cynthia Calvert and her colleagues at The Project for Attorney Retention (PAR) for posting about JD Bliss on their blog earlier this week. The accolades were much appreciated.

PAR's website offers an extensive collection of resources to law firms seeking to improve attorney retention with alternative work schedules such as part-time or flex time arrangements that help lawyers better balance work and personal demands. Among the resources offered on PAR's website:

  • a new monthly retention "best practice" for law firms - this month's best practice recommends the appointment of a Balanced Hours Coordinator; that is, a partner or administrator reporting directly to the head of the firm who oversees the successful implementation and administration of part-time and other balanced hours program.
  • the "Scoop" is a table that summarizes the availability (or lack thereof) of part-time programs at selected major law firms. The table includes links to comments about particular firms' programs, such as whether supervising attorneys respect the schedules of those working less than full-time and whether bonuses and other benefits are available to those on reduced schedules.
  • Articles and research on part-time programs at major law firms

In sum, we highly recommend the site for any law firm struggling with retention issues.
