Panel Discussion and Networking Reception
This program featured a discussion about the ways in which women can identify and pursue leadership opportunities in the legal profession—beginning in law school and continuing as they transition into law practice and throughout their careers. Panelists addressed peer networking in law school; making the transition from law student leader to new attorney; and the role of mentors and sponsors in one’s professional development, including how to cultivate and maintain those relationships both at law school and in law practice.  The program was aimed at law students, recent law school grads, and new attorneys.

A wine and cheese networking reception sponsored by
Debevoise & Plimpton LLP  followed the program
