Returning to the legal profession after spending time in another field or out of the workforce can be a challenge. The Center for Women in Law is proud to partner with Mother Attorney Mentor Association of Austin (MAMAs) to host a virtual panel of experts to address ways to bridge the career gap. Topics will include leveraging your networks, maintaining and updating your skills, mentorship, and overcoming biases. The panel will also address how legal employers can recruit, welcome, and retain lawyers reentering the workforce.
