While most Americans are well aware of the wage gap between men and women, it might seem surprising to learn that wage gaps persist even among graduates of the prestigious Harvard Law School.  Bloomberg's Big Law Business recently posted this article about the results of a survey conducted by the school's Center on the Legal Profession. It covers four different graduating classes since 1975.

Check out the full article to read more about the study and this issue.
