The Firm’s Women in IP Initiative is presenting its fourth and final CLE program for 2019 on December 11. It’s not too late to register for the live event in Washington DC or for the webinar. Join us for an important discussion about Women in the Courtroom, featuring a view from the appellate bench.
Jones Day is hosting a program on women as lead counsel or arguing counsel at the appellate level, called "Women in the Appellate Courtroom." Studies and reports show that women are less likely to serve as lead counsel or arguing counsel in appeals across the country. The panel will explore the progress that has been made so far, what steps can be taken to build on that progress, and how all practitioners can improve their advocacy at oral argument. This program will provide perspectives from the court and leading women appellate practitioners who will reflect on their recent experiences and provide insight on how the profession can encourage women to successfully take on more active roles in appeals.
During this CLE program, the panel discussion will be moderated by Jennifer Swize, Partner, Jones Day. Panelists include: The Honorable Kara Farnandez Stoll, Judge, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit; Dori Bernstein, Former Director, Georgetown University Law Center's Supreme Court Institute; and Beth Heifetz, Practice Leader, Issues & Appeals, Jones Day.
