The National Association of Women Lawyers invites you to the 2018 Mid-Year Meeting in South Beach! This year's conference theme is Shifting Paradigms in the Legal Profession: Altering Perception for a Better Reality and it promises to be an engaging and innovative program offering both professional development opportunities and skills training to help attorneys in all fields of legal practice thrive in their careers. Members will have the opportunity to shape the future of NAWL and the legal profession. We will recognize and honor leading lawyers and business leaders who have made a significant impact on improving and diversifying the legal profession. And, as always, there will be plenty of time for networking built in throughout the event.
