Anyone know if Cravath plans to match the Ropes & Gray parental leave policy released a couple of weeks ago or if any other firms are matching that? It’s 14 weeks gender neutral, 8 weeks for birthing mother (up to 22 weeks paid total) and the option of 4 weeks unpaid for a total of 26 weeks.

I am blown away at how disparate parental leave policies are in BigLaw. Keep posting about them, keep raising them to firm management, keep asking about policies in interviews, and keep raising concerns about them in exit interviews. We work way too hard in this industry (not that working hard should really dictate parental leave…) to not have adequate time to bond with our newborns and/or support our partner that just gave birth.

Hoping it catches on!

That’s awesome. I can’t believe firms still don’t have gender neutral parental leave…

What about gay men who adopt? They don’t do primary caregiver leave? I can’t imagine bringing home a newborn baby after adoption and only having 2 weeks home before sending the child to daycare or with a nanny!

DLA’s policy is completely gender neutral. I haven’t looked at it in a while, so I don’t know the exact amount, but I think It’s 18 or 20 weeks fully paid regardless of whether you are mother or father.
