The Women's Legal Association at the School of Law will host a panel discussion to address the women’s leadership issues raised in Sheryl Sandberg’s bestselling book Lean In on Tuesday, Mar. 4, at 4 p.m. at the Gunder Conference Room (SR1) at the School of Law, Malibu. A Q&A will follow the panel discussion and attendees will be invited to the atrium for a light reception and further conversation.
Four female attorneys, ranging from mid-level associate to former presiding judge, will provide a broad perspective on pathways within the legal profession and ways to manage the demands of firms, clients, partners and families, on issues of access, retention, promotion and leadership. Each guest is a member of the LACBA Ad Hoc Presidential Advisory Committee on Women in the Legal Profession.
The list of panelists includes The Honorable Lee S. Edmon, the first-ever woman assistant presiding judge, Los Angeles Superior Court; Amy Fisch Solomon, an attorney at Girardi & Keese, where she focuses on areas of professional liability, toxic torts, products liability, and insurance bad faith; Susan Koehler Sullivan, a commercial litigator specializing in corporate insurance matters at Sedgwick LLP; and Margaret P. Stevens, a civil litigator at Stevens Law and treasurer of the Los Angeles County Bar Association.
