Women make up nearly half of the Quebec Bar’s roll

By 2021 more than half of lawyers in Quebec will be women, reveals the latest annual report of Quebec’s legal society.

At present, women already make up nearly half of the Bar’s Roll of Order, with 11,838 members or 49 per cent of membership, the highest percentage in North America. On average women practising the profession are younger and have less experience than men. The 12,301 men who are currently practising are around 48 years old and have 21.6 years of experience, compared with women who are 41, with 14 years of experience.
