We’re pleased to invite you to save the date for Ms. JD’s 12th Annual Conference on Women in the Law. The conference will be held on Friday, March 13, 2020, at Northwestern Pritzker School of Law in historic Chicago, Illinois. Last year’s conference featured a celebration of Ms. JD Honors recipients and panels on a diverse set of topics including alternative legal careers, personal branding, and strategies for career success. Conference attendees enjoyed ample time for networking and empowering breakout sessions.
Ms. JD’s annual conferences present a unique opportunity to meet with fellow women in the law, network and learn to be a more effective advocate. The conference is suited for legal professionals, law students, and even legal aficionados.
For the last eleven years, Ms. JD has gathered women from law schools and legal markets around the country for a summit on the progress made by and remaining challenges for women in the profession. The conferences have previously been held in Austin, Washington D.C., New Haven, New York City, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. Past speakers include former New York Court of Appeals Chief Judge Judith Kaye, Allstate General Counsel Michele Mayes, Shell Oil General Counsel Catherine Lamboley, Slate.com's Dahlia Lithwick, and District Judge Joan Lefkow.
We hope you will join us!
