2019 Women in Law Institute (Los Angeles)

Location: Jones Day

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:  communicating with impact, communicating your value, and building strategic relationships. Following each of the first two lectures, students work in small groups led by distinguished practitioners (3:1 ratio) to practice these skills through practice and individualized critiques in a supportive environment.  The day ends with a cocktail party where participants can work on their networking skills.  More information on the focus of each workshop can be found in the Women in Law Institute – Session Objectives.
