More on Law Department Sabbaticals

Rees Morrison again posts on the topic of law department sabbaticals.  Morrison cites statistics that 23 percent of businesses in the country offer paid or unpaid sabbaticals.  But while many of these companies have substantial law departments, Morrison notes that "I have never heard of one of their in-house lawyers who has taken such a leave."   Some companies allow lawyers to take a sabbatical as they wish, while others only permit the lawyer to work for a nonprofit. 

I'd certainly take time off if I had the option, particularly if the company paid for my leave.  I'd like to know why more lawyers don't take advantage of these programs.
