In 3 days, students who are considering a law career find the answer from women attorneys – and non attorneys – who influence, create, and administer national policy every day.
These women are Supreme Court Justices and law clerks, Members of Congress and their legislative staffs, White House officials and federal agency leaders, nonprofit advocates and corporate lobbyists, and public interest lawyers.
Most of the speakers are veteran policy makers. Their diverse jobs show the range of career paths available. Others are early in their careers. They explain how to get started in a career. A law school representative and law students discuss the realities of getting into law school and paying for it.
About 50 college women attend this seminar each year. Some decide they want to attend law school. Some realize they don’t have to be a lawyer to be a policy maker. Almost all say the experience had significant impact on their personal career plans.
