    The first female legal trainee- just now?! Wow…but it is a step in the right direction. But I do have to wonder-what happens after she finishes her three years of apprenticeship? Will anyone actually seek her out and hire her? Or will she be considered less skilled than a male lawyer and pretty much be unemployable?
