In any discussion of gender stereotypes among women in the legal profession, the topic of being mistaken for a court reporter will inevitably come up and result in an almost unanimous response of groans and head nods. In today’s episode, The Mother Board takes a lighthearted approach to the serious issues continuing to plague the legal profession.
