Women in Law Institute at TexasLaw
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. More information on the focus of each workshop can be found in the Women in Law Institute – Session Objectives.
Law Students, LL.M.s, and Judicial Clerks
Registration is open to all law students, LL.M.s, and judicial clerks. Participants will take part in all three workshops: (1) How to Communicate with Impact; (2) Demonstrate Your Value; and (3) Build Strategic Relationships. Registration will open in January 2018.
Practitioners with 7 or more years experience
Registration is open to become a faculty member. What is a faculty member? A senior level practitioner who co-leads one or more of the small group workshops for the Institute. Practitioners will volunteer about 3-4 hours (1-hour training and 2-3 hours on the day of the event) per session. You may sign up for one, two or three sessions as your schedule permits. You will receive training on the goals of the workshop and how to critique the law students to improve their skills.
Interested in becoming a faculty member? Contact CWIL Deputy Director Courtney Chavez to register.
