A teaching case on the reality of part time policies for associates and partners in law firms. This case shows that formal policies have failed to overcome the informal norms or culture that penalized professionals for deviating from what was engrained in the minds of senior partners and others in the profession as the "ideal worker." It asks the reader to develop a strategy, considering the different stakeholders, to solve this problem.
