Jeralyn Lawrence, founder and Managing Partner of Lawrence Law, will participate in the NJSBA Forum on Women’s Leadership in the Law. The year’s most innovative and practical event aimed at fostering the advancement of women in the legal profession will take place on Monday, February 11 at the New Jersey Law Center in New Brunswick, New Jersey.

The event will feature Patricia Gillette, one of the county’s leading experts on gender diversity and equality in the workplace. A top-rated trial lawyer and nationally recognized author, she’ll share decades of experience on how women can succeed in the high-powered and fast-paced business environment of today. Gillette will present practical tips to address obstacles like: the fear of failure, impostor syndrome, the confidence gap and presentation styles. She’ll also share the insights of her new book, Rainmakers: Born or Bred, that will help attorneys make the most of the business development opportunities they encounter every day – while staying true to their unique personality.
Lawrence will join a panel discussion about the opportunities and obstacles facing women in government, the business sector and legal community. The panel will include other women leaders in the New Jersey legal field. She will also join some of New Jersey’s other top rainmakers, and those who hire them, in small group discussions.
