WOMEN IN LAW

Making a Case for Leadership, Community, and Balance

 

 Women have been practicing law in the United States for over 150 years.1 Though the climate for women in the legal profession has evolved over time, modern-day women in the field often struggle to achieve the same professional successes as their male counterparts, while also carrying the load of family obligations on their shoulders. However, a career in law can be fulfilling and successful with the right tool kit and mindset in place to tackle the obstacles often placed in the path of women in this profession.

 

This month, we will introduce you to five lawyers, each of whom are managing lucrative legal careers, coupled with rewarding personal lives. These women have valuable advice to offer those embarking on a career in the legal field (or any new endeavor), all having emerged as leaders in their communities. They are setting a precedent of integrity, tenacity, and graciousness that is helping to pave a path for future women in law.
