Current Research

Professor Kay has three on-going projects. The first is a twenty-year longitudinal study examining the career pathways of men and women lawyers. A second study focuses on career progress and retention of racial minorities in large corporate U.S. firms. A third study explores issues of access to justice and altruism with a focus on pro bono (free) legal service among lawyers. These projects are funded by grants from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) and the Law School Admission Council (LSAC).
