Law Firm Leaders Focus on Empowering Women Attorneys

Top attorneys from several major firms participated on a panel at the Women in Law Empowerment Forum yesterday in Washington, DC. Panelists discussed ways law firms can help women succeed in the industry. "Firm management must set the expectations of what it expects of itself and its partners with respect to promoting partners at the firm," panelist Claudette Christian said. "What we really try to get are male partners in leadership roles to understand that it is their personal responsibility to promote women in the office." The Blog of the Legal Times has the story.
