Women Lead WITH Illinois Law Summit

Friday, March 6, 2020
College of Law Building

 

Illinois Law is committed to the advancement of women in the legal profession. Nationally renowned female scholars have made their home on our faculty, researching cutting edge legal topics in areas involving psychology and the law, criminal law and procedure, family law, environmental law and ethics, tax law, employment discrimination, transitional justice, and more. Our administration has boasted many successful women in dean and assistant dean positions, and Illinois Law alumnae include activists, academics, judges and justices, and leaders in public and private law.

 

The Women Lead WITH Illinois Law Summit aims to gather the members of our community – students, faculty, alumni, and guests – for a day of content intended to inspire and empower women to embrace positions of leadership in the law, to create meaningful connections, and to support each other’s personal and professional goals. We will:

  1. Share knowledge about issues and challenges that are unique to women in the legal profession, as well as innovative approaches to navigating them throughout the career life cycle.
  2. Provide intergenerational female-to-female opportunities to network and build or enhance existing relationships.
  3. Promote a culture of inclusivity by cultivating diverse female voices to provide a range of lived experiences and perspectives.
  4. Celebrate our female students, faculty, and alumni who are either in leadership positions themselves or are actively working to advance workplace equity.

***This course is approved for up to 5.75 Illinois MCLE general credit hours.***
