While having a personal career game plan can benefit lawyers of all sexes, it’s particularly critical for women lawyers. Whether your aim is to build a practice, make an internal (or external) career move at a firm or in-house, create or revise client development or client satisfaction initiatives, all of the above (or something else), a written plan of action will provide you with an invaluable edge. Join us on this webinar to learn how you can create a written plan that brings incredible clarity and focus to your practice and career, and that leads to even greater success.
For 120 years, the National Association of Women Lawyers has been empowering women in the legal profession and has acted as the voice of women in the law. In continuing with tradition, this summer we will once again celebrate leaders in our organization and the profession, along with comprehensive and rich workshop programming relevant to women in all fields of legal practice. Join NAWL and over 900 attendees, including outside and in-house counsel, and attorneys from government, military, non-profits, and academia, at the 2019 Annual Awards Luncheon on Thursday, July 18, 2019.
Legislatures all over the world are enacting new data privacy and cybersecurity laws, in response to public outrage over corporate mishandling of personal data. This presentation will provide a brief overview of new laws like CCPA, GDPR and NYDFS, discuss the main steps in launching a compliant privacy and cybersecurity program, and address the most common pitfalls that companies face while trying to protect consumer data.
The practice and business of law is experiencing a great deal of change and evolution. What is driving this transformation and what does it mean for your legal career? More importantly, will your response be reactive or proactive? Using lessons learned throughout her professional life, attorney and legal tech entrepreneur, Bernadette Bulacan, will share insights on the transformation of the legal profession.
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.

A successful career can be a solitary, transient achievement unless we create a legacy by handing down the gift of knowledge, experience, and opportunity to others. A career ladder is best climbed with one hand reaching towards the next rung and the other hand extended behind, bringing others along with us. Join us at the National Association of Women Lawyers' Fourteenth General Counsel Institute ("GCI 14") as we explore building careers that build a community.
The Meeting the Challenge Conference is NAWL's distinctive forum during which attendees learn from thought-leaders, share best practices, and forge the meaningful and lasting connections necessary to meet NAWL's One-Third by 2020 Challenge. Issued in March 2016, the 2020 Challenge urges the legal profession to increase the representation of women, particularly diverse women, in every branch of the legal profession. This conference will offer attendees skills to develop their own leadership potential as well as strategies for making systemic change. NAWL will also unveil the results of its 2018 Survey on the Promotion and Retention of Women in Law Firms, administered by Professor Destiny Peery of Northwestern University's Pritzker School of Law at the conference.
