Abstract

BONELLI, Maria da Gloria; CUNHA, Luciana G.; OLIVEIRA, Fabiana L. de  and  SILVEIRA, Maria Natália B. da. Gendered careers in São Paulo law firms. Tempo soc. [online]. 2008, vol.20, n.1, pp. 265-290. ISSN 0103-2070.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-20702008000100013.

The article analyzes the differences in the professionalization of men and women lawyers in a survey of 216 young professionals from São Paulo law firms. It shows how professionalism and gender relations combine to stratify legal practice and differentiate careers according to a 'sexed script,' whether in terms of being a partner or an associate, or in terms of the size of the firm where people work (small, medium or large) and the main clients they represent (individuals or companies).

Keywords : Professionalization; Men and Women Lawyers; Gender.
