Description

Skills

Women & Leadership is a one credit, seven week seminar course for law students that examines the obstacles (internal and external) that prevent women from reaching leadership positions in proportional numbers. Over the course of seven weeks, students engage in dialogue in response to assigned readings and self-assessment tools.  Students also hear from female leaders working in different areas of legal practice who will discuss their experiences and the decisions that helped shape their careers. Grading is based on participation and a final paper.
