2014 Women in Law Institute
Described by one partner at a top law firm as “the most practical tool I’ve encountered in my 20 years of practicing,” the Women in Law Institute is an all-day, intensive workshop for law students, judicial clerks, and LL.M.’s. Participants can look forward to expert presentations on the essential skills for navigating a successful career in law: effective communication, self-promotion, and networking. Following each lecture, students work in small groups led by distinguished practitioners (3:1 ratio) to perfect these skills through practice and individualized critiques in a supportive environment. This year, for the first time ever, the Center for Women in Law is partnering with Ms. JD to hold Ms. JD’s Sixth Annual Conference on Women in the Law, taking place the preceding day, Friday, February 21, 2014. Because of our partnership with Ms. JD, we are expecting a record number of participants. We encourage you to register early as spaces are limited.
