Follow Us On

Successful people are open to new challenges. In order to be poised to say yes to new opportunities, we must be confident in our abilities, trust that our prior work has prepared us for the next step, and be willing to take on the accompanying risk of a new challenge. Whether you already have mastered your current challenges or want to position yourself to push for more, the National Association of Women Lawyers’ Thirteenth General Counsel Institute offers you the tools you need to take advantage of the power of preparation and to have the courage to say yes.

In a legal landscape that can make it difficult to advance, we invite you to join us for this two-day program designed to give you the tools to: (1) position yourself to advance your career; (2) gain insight into the hottest topics in the law; (3) acquire knowledge and enhance your proficiency about the most talked about labor and employment matters; (4) take a deep dive into today’s regulatory and compliance issues; and (5) tap into technology, and embrace the changes that accompany this ever-evolving area of the law, and more.

At GCI 13, you will be asked to challenge yourself and consider what you need to do to feel prepared, powerful, and courageous. Through inspiring stories, substantive legal workshops, and GCI’s unique open exchange of ideas, GCI 13 will help you gain leadership skills, business acumen, and the power to say yes.
