    This article discusses how finding a job as a lateral associate in the Am Law 100 can be a challenging task no matter the circumstances. For female attorneys who have left the practice of law for many years, the challenge of getting a new job can be extremely difficult. Caren Ulrich Stacy, a Colorado based legal consultant, plans on establishing a fellowship program that will permit women attorneys who have taken a break from the profession to return to AM Law firms. As of today, Baker Botts, Cooley, Hogan Lovells and Sidley Austin have agreed to participate in the program. Stacy said she plans on expanding the effort if the first year goes well.
