Men come second best to women in contest for top legal jobs

Female solicitors proportionally outperformed their male counterparts in a recent competition to become senior counsel, data obtained by the Irish Independent reveals.

Earlier this month the Government approved the granting of patents of precedence to 12 solicitors, seven men and five women.
However, figures provided by the committee advising the Government reveal female applicants fared proportionally better than men who applied.
A quarter of the 20 female solicitors who applied convinced the advisory committee to recommend them for the prestigious titles.
However, only a fifth of the 35 male solicitors who applied managed to do the same.
