Women lawyers looking to accelerate their careers will have the opportunity to hear from those holding the keys to success during the 2012 Women in Law Leadership (WILL) Academy presented by the American Bar Association Commission on Women in the Profession and the Young Lawyers Division December 6-7 at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco.
The WILL Academy, titled Changing the Rules of the Game: It’s About Time, is designed to teach the skills necessary for maximizing leadership opportunities and the best practices for business development. It also offers the chance for women to network with some of the legal profession’s prominent general counsel, judges and practitioners.
