2014 Women in Law Institute

Location: The University of Texas School of Law

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 received expert presentations on the essential skills for navigating a successful career in law: effective communication, self-promotion, and networking. Following each lecture, students worked 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 partnered with Ms. JD to hold Ms. JD’s Sixth Annual Conference on Women in the Law, which took place the preceding day, Friday, February 21, 2014. Because of our partnership with Ms. JD, we received a record number of participants.
