Interesting Article on How Law Office Rules Affect Women
The New Jersey Law Journal has an article about a recent advisory ruling by the NJ bar concerning compliance with New Jersey's bona fide office rule.
The advisory opinion warns lawyers who rent space in cooperative office arrangements that they might be in violation of this rule by listing it as their primary place of business. Female lawyers, however, have expressed concerns that the regulation might discriminate against women since juggling of home and work responsibilities often requires "non-traditional" office arrangements.
