Name: Women in a new era of Law Panel Discussion
Date: October 24, 2018
Time: 6:00 PM - 8:30 PM EDT
Registration: Sorry, registration for this event has been closed.
Event Description:

The practice of law has changed dramatically in response to shifts in business models, new technologies, reactions to the 2007-2008 financial crisis, and changes in the composition of the legal profession. All these changes have led to new opportunities, and particularly women in law have brought a fresh perspective to meeting these new business challenges in a creative and efficient manner.

Come hear four inspiring leaders in the legal profession discuss the ways that they advise both the newest and most longstanding businesses to meet the demands of a new era - from the beer industry to blockchain!
