Part-time advancement

What is the impact of working part-time as an associate, if any, on an associate's progression toward partner? While the impact of reduced schedules on the timing of partnership consideration must ultimately be evaluated on an individual basis, just as partnership readiness for full-time associates is evaluated, these guidelines will be considered: A leave or leaves which, in conjunction with any reduced work schedules, are 26 weeks or less will have no effect on the time when an associate advances. A leave or leaves which, in combination with any reduced work schedules, exceeds 26 weeks may have an effect on the pace at which an associate advances. However, to the extent that an associate remains at, or attains over time, the same level of performance and experience as others in the individual's law school class, the leave(s) and/or reduced schedule may not have such an effect.
