Mentor’s Corner:  Sexual Harassment at Work

My Mom worked as a typing teacher and life skills coach starting when I was very young.  The Principal in my mother’s school  was kindly, tall, slightly charming and handsome man with a big smile for everyone. He ran a public school for special education students in an era when the idea of educating those students was an experiment, almost a generation before the passage of the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) and the subsequent laws that educate people with invisible cognitive disabilities. It was a job for a visionary , creative and hardworking man, and he was the right man…

What *exactly* is free speech under the 1st amendment?

Lately there's been a lot of legal buzzwords and buzz phrases thrown around in the news. Free speech, First Amendment, hate speech are just a few of these. This post will give an overview of the legal basics about free speech. The First Amendment of the United States Constitution states: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” But what does that actual…

Becoming a powerful female attorney or law school Juris Doctor of Law (J.D.) graduate in today’s grueling professional circle is no small feat for many in today’s society. May I first start out by applauding all of my fellow law school graduates and attorney groups for completing this perilous journey while many others failed or strayed too far from the path.

The Road Less Traveled: When You’re Forced Off Your Narrative Arc, and What To Do

In my day job as Associate Director of Talent at Bliss Lawyers, many of the attorneys that I speak with describe how an alt-path gives them the flexibility to optimize their lives. BigLaw hours no longer constrain them from nurturing a side hustle into profitability, pursuit of a sub-three hour marathon, writing and publishing that novel that's been swirling around in their heads, traveling abroad, or assuming a role as family caregiver.   But many of the people I speak with - including myself - were forced off the traditional path.  Like Westworld hosts, we come into this world with a narrative arc, except one…

Comparison of the EU and USA Laws - Protecting Jobs When Pregnant

One striking difference between Europe and the USA is their election laws. Many nations in Europe are still ruled by a Royal family: Netherlands, Belgium, Monaco, Sweden, Denmark and Spain just to name a few.  This alters the perspective regarding national elections: electing members of a Parliament and local officials is relatively close to the wishes and desires of the local electorate because in the big picture the larger governing structure remains overall the same. And, the pan-European election system for the members of the European Union government in Brussels and Strasbourg and the Council of Europe Committee of Ministers in…

Take Two: The Journey to Retaking the Bar—Finding a Job

IT’S APRIL!!! I’m excited because it means that March is over, and I only have to wait another month (hopefully) before the results are released. Last month went by a lot quicker than I thought. I went back to my full-time work weeks between my job and internship. I’m the type of person that needs to stay busy and don’t necessarily know what it means to “do nothing.” I get bored with doing nothing, so I’m glad I have somewhere to be 9-5 Monday through Friday. Every month when it’s time to write a new post, I come up blank,…

The diversity in gender is still a debatable topic especially when it comes to leadership positions. We've known that women made tremendous efforts and tons of work to be where they are currently, yet some are still struggling in proving the world that they are equally smart as men and that they also deserve to be leaders. As a matter of fact, several companies in the Philippines such as LinkVista Digital, Procter and Gamble, and Ayala Corporation are open to the idea of hiring more female employees. More and more companies worldwide are welcoming the ladies in their workforce, however,…

Removing Legal Barriers to Women’s Economic Empowerment: UN Global Compact Spotlights Partnership

Few people within the United Nations (UN) system talk about the impact in 1982 when USA President Ronald Reagan pulled the economic plug on USA international relations by withdrawing funding from key international organizations within the UN System. The move was based upon the administration's political agenda, fully within the scope of powers of the USA Executive Branch, despite underlying treaty provisions. The move had three impacts: First, withdrawl of funds threatened to have a dominio effect, with large funders withdrawing their funding too.
