Consider attending this upcoming panel, co-sponsored by UBC Law’s Centre for Business Law and Centre for Feminist Legal Studies. The promotion of equality for women in the legal profession is part of the ethical and professional responsibilities of all lawyers. Much attention to this issue has been focused on the important question of the retention of women in private practice, which is usually linked to challenges in balancing the demands of practice and family responsibilities. While these are important issues, they are not the only issues facing women lawyers throughout their career paths.
The panel will consider other ways in which opportunities for women lawyers are impacted. Practical strategies and problem-solving will be emphasized. Among the panelists is UBC Law professor and CFLS Faculty Director Janine Benedet. The event is *free* for UBC Law students and faculty but registration is required.
WHEN: Friday November 28th, 8:30am-11am
WHERE: Metropolitan Hotel, 645 Howe Street
