via Webinar

Please join us for a virtual discussion of strategies and best practices for empowering women lawyers to take lead roles in the courtroom.

Despite the steadily rising number of women entering the legal profession, women are far less likely than men to lead trial teams in civil litigation. In this program, you will hear perspectives from the bench, in-house counsel, and experienced trial lawyers on making the most of every opportunity.

We hope you will be able to join us for this informative event.
