TLAW's 2016 Empowerment Conference was a Huge Success!

August 03, 2016 4:28 PM | Crista Cuccaro (Administrator)

In April 2016, TLAW hosted an Empowerment Conference with the theme Great Expectations. Women from across the state participated in the Conference. Thank you to all of the attendees, speakers, and sponsors of this fantastic event. TLAW extends a special thanks to keynote speaker, Gwen K. Young, of the Wilson Center's Women in Public Service Project.  

The Conference provided attendees with education and valuable insights presented by members of the legislature, judiciary, and other governmental representatives on how to prepare oneself for an elected or appointed position. The Conference also included a panel of attorneys in general counsel positions providing the perspective of the “in house” attorney and advice for “outside counsel” working with corporate counsel and a panel of experienced attorneys presenting on leadership in various contexts.
