Vera Martinez talks about women in law


Vera Martinez, Senior Associate at the CCA’s Real Estate Department, in conversation with Advocatus, explains what she thinks of the role of women in law and how she sees career progression in law firms.

102 years after guaranteeing the right of women to access law, there are still many changes to be made to guarantee gender parity in the various aspects inherent to the operation of law firms. According to Vera Martinez, "there should be room for everyone on the basis of merit", adding, however, that "in law, women still encounter obstacles that are not posed to men and face challenges that are directly related to the social role women may want to play in their personal lives, especially if they want to start a family".
