Women’s Power Summit on Law & Leadership

The Women’s Power Summit on Law & Leadership will be a historic gathering of specially selected leading women in law, ranging from those at the highest echelons of private practice and the corporate sector to their counterparts in government, non-profits, academia and the judiciary.

The three-day event, held April 29, 30 and May 1, 2009, will feature speakers and panel discussions on a variety of topics affecting women within the legal profession. Participants will share information, assess the progress that has been made, identify the end goals, network and set an agenda for future change.
