ABA Presentation Looks at Gender and Legal Careers

Elizabeth Hanke of KCIC captures many of the salient points articulated during the March 2015 ABA Insurance Coverage Litigation Committee’s Gender Bender, Take Two panel discussion in her July 14, 2015 blog. (See below). Elizabeth challenges us to share our thoughts about how far women in law have come as well as how far they have to go.


We, at WOMN LLC, have observed that the higher compensation and leadership roles within today’s law firms are typically bestowed upon the attorneys bringing in the most revenue through existing and new business.  Women attorneys need to be proactive in developing the desired skills to best position themselves for success in their careers. This includes making a commitment to hone their business development skills.
