DRI’s Women in the Law presents this seminar to help women lawyers maximize their full potential inside and outside of the courtroom. The seminar addresses the unique challenges women face in the practice of law and offers an alternative model for success, based on a woman’s distinctive communication style and personality. The program is designed to help participants hone trial and business development skills. The faculty includes in-house lawyers from recognized companies, experienced trial lawyers, and nationally prominent business and marketing consultants.
Topics include how to formulate a successful client pitch; tips and tricks for using technology to enhance a practice; preparing company witnesses effectively for deposition and trial; and getting traction on intractable issues: building buy-in for gender initiatives.
