    2019 Denver Conference
    Monday, April 29, 2019 - Tuesday, April 30, 2019
    Four Seasons Denver
    1111 14th St. | Denver, CO 80202

    This conference is designed for lawyers of all levels to “elevate” their careers while in the Mile High City.  The conference will explore how women lawyers at all levels can advance their careers, with programming on both substantive changes in the law and embracing our diversity and using it to our advantage, rather than trying to fit in to a traditional mold.  The programming will include a fireside chat with local GCs and an interactive presentation-skills session.  During concurrent sessions, attendees will have the opportunity to learn about recent changes in Title IX, board service opportunities and news laws relating to gender diversity on boards, recent trends in hiring and salaries for both in-house counsel and outside-counsel, and communication skills with an intergenerational panel of women lawyers.  The program will conclude with a panel of Denver women on the bench and a networking reception, where attendees will have the opportunity to network with peers and presenters alike.  The primary goal of the conference is to help each attendee take the next steps toward achieving her own definition of professional success.

    Public Rights Project's 2019 Fellowship

    The application for Public Rights Project’s 2019 Public Rights Project Fellowship is now live! We created this fellowship to help talented attorneys find pathways into rewarding public service careers. This year, we will place fellows in the Office of the Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan and the Wisconsin Department of Justice. During their placements, fellows will collaborate with their government colleagues on a range of civil rights, economic justice, and environmental justice issues that directly impact vulnerable populations locally and across the country. They will pursue affirmative work to enforce the laws that protect their communities.
    Our fellowships last for 2 years, and we believe these placements are particularly well-suited to attorneys with approximately 3-5 years of post-law school experience.
    Interested attorneys can submit applications until May 15, 2019.
