Many women advocates experience particular challenges in the middle years of their career, as increasing responsibilities at work and at home come into conflict. Hear from our seasoned panel on the benefits of pushing through the difficult years, and giving effect to the phrase coined by Justice Akbarali: “The best way to stay in practice is to not quit”.
Attendees will have the opportunity to continue the discussion in breakout rooms.
This event is being organized by the Women in Law Working Group of the 10+ Standing Committee
. The 10+ Standing Committee was established to promote the interests of mid-career advocates within The Advocates' Society. The Committee fosters networking and engagement among mid-career members to support advocates during this phase of their career and promote access to justice initiatives, pro bono initiatives, leadership, and career and business development programs for mid-career advocates. The Women in Law Working Group was created with the understanding that mid-career women litigators benefit from initiatives and events that focus on and can speak to the unique challenges faced by women in the legal sector.
