2020 Mid-Year Meeting
Wednesday, March 11 - Thursday, March 12

Swissotel
323 East Upper Wacker Drive | Chicago, IL

On behalf of the National Association of Women Lawyers, we personally invite you to join us at the 2020 NAWL Mid-Year Meeting in Chicago on March 11-12, 2020, at the Swissotel Chicago.

As Co-Chairs of NAWL’s 2020 Mid-Year Meeting Planning Committee, we are truly excited about this year’s program which includes a mix of professional development and substantive sessions, as well as plenty of networking time. This year’s sessions include topics such as leveraging technology in your practice, inherent bias in the legal profession, mindfulness, and an interactive session on best practices to help women lawyers succeed. This comprehensive and rich program is relevant to women in all fields of legal practice. Our confirmed speakers include Walgreen’s Chief HR Officer Kristin Oliver, Northern Trust’s General Counsel Susan Levy, Northwestern Law’s Dean Kimberly Yuracko, and Chief Judge Rebecca Pallmeyer, Northern District of Illinois. Click the "agenda" tab above for more information on the program and other speakers.

While we hope that you learn a lot from the meeting, we also want you to enjoy yourselves in Chicago, NAWL’s hometown. We believe that you will leave the 2020 NAWL Mid-Year Meeting inspired.
