Fifty percent of law school graduates are women, yet women are far less likely than men to lead their own cases at trial. In this program, you will hear perspectives from the bench and experienced trial lawyers on how to make the most of every opportunity. Our panelists will share best practices for maximizing your authentic litigator's voice, understanding juror perceptions, and navigating the minefield of common mistakes.
