Summary University employment in Australia is experiencing a period of decreased security and compensation. Women tend to have more frequent labour force transitions and respond more to non-employment commitments than do men. Relative to other formal sector employers, universities can offer greater flexibility in work schedules. The law of comparative advantage predicts that universities' flexibility, together with women's labour force characteristics will prompt an expansion of women's employment in universities and in law schools in particular. Changes in employment patterns in Australian law schools confirm to this prediction. Deterioration in employment conditions thus leads to increased female participation in this case.
