Jeralyn Lawrence, founder and Managing Partner of Lawrence Law, will participate in a panel discussion at the New Jersey State Bar Association 2020 Virtual Annual Meeting entitled ABA Study/Women and the Business of Law. Lawrence will be joined by other esteemed panelists. The following is a description of the program:
The legal landscape for women continues to present many obstacles and recent reports suggest that women attorneys will suffer the most in the recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. These obstacles are not new but our response to them should be. Hear from the authors of the American Bar Association’s landmark study “Walking Out the Door,” which examined why women leave the law. Learn why culture and unwritten rules can make the business of law so challenging for women and gain valuable strategies from our esteemed panel that all attorneys — especially women — can use to develop and thrive in the profession. Wherever you are in the life cycle of your legal career, you are sure to walk away from this program with a renewed sense of purpose and determination.
For the first time ever – the New Jersey State Bar Association Annual Meeting and Convention will be a virtual symposium. As the voice of New Jersey attorneys, the NJSBA supports more than 18,000 members by fostering professionalism, advancing personal development and encouraging participation.
