Women, Law, and Legal Advocacy

The legal sector offers unparalleled opportunity to affect policy. From nonprofits’ advocacy, to Congressional staffs crafting legislation, to the chambers of the Supreme Court, women are on the front lines of the great legal battles of our time.

At the three-day Women, Law, and Legal Advocacy seminar, college women from across the U.S. considering a career in law will explore the connections between legal careers and the legislative process in Washington, DC, see first-hand how to use a career in law to make a difference in their communities and the country, and gain access to a network of women ready to help them launch a legal career.
