  • I am intrigued by the statement that this long overdue and admirable move will have any impact at all of the Western firms currently in the Kingdom.

    Western firms have been here since the opening up of the oil business and the lack of female Saudi lawyers has never caused a moments loss of sleep, I imagine. Why would it? So long as you can get a supply of Western-trained lawyers on the ground to do your work it is surely a matter of indifference whether Saudi female graduates can obtain law licenses. Of course there are brownie points these days for diversity in the grand game of law firm marketing, but from the point of view of getting work in, done and back out the door, is there much room for moral concern about the domestic gender policies of the host country.
