Editor's Note: Ms. JD is pleased to present a new series of blog posts as part of our NWLSO expansion. In this series, the Ms. JD Board will answer a question aimed at helping our readers succeed in and get the most out of law school. This post will focus on "Why You Should Think About Attending Passion Forward," Ms. JD's sixth annual Conference on Women in the Law, in partnership with the Center for Women in Law at The University of Texas School of Law. The conference will take place from February 21-22, 2014 in Austin, Texas. More details about this exciting event can be found here.
If you're enjoying these tips, you can sign up to be an individual member of NWLSO, or you can start a NWLSO chapter at your law school (or check on the status of NWLSO at your law school) by emailing our NWLSO liaison Liz Hague at email@example.com.
1. The Ms. JD conference was my very first interaction with Ms. JD and jump-started my love affair with the organization. (No seriously! After I was a student volunteer for the Chicago conference, I became a Writer-in-Residence, a Ms. JD Fellow, an assistant on the Law Review Survey project, and eventually they realized they couldn't get rid of me and asked me to join the Board!) But the conference remains my favorite Ms. JD project because of the energy that it gives me. There is nothing quite like the support you get from the speakers and attendees at the conference, all of whom are committed to working together to help one another. At each conference, I have started relationships that have become life-long friendships. These are women I turn to for advice, both personal and professional, and they are bonds that are not to be missed! - Katie Larkin-Wong, Ms. JD President
