Corporate and business law is reputed to be a profession dominated by men. Even as firms have made strides towards inclusiveness, the gender gap persists. Our speakers will explore the reasons for this and try to separate myth from reality. What are the ways in which the profession has discouraged or forestalled more women from choosing a career in corporate or business law? How should women with an interest in business law approach these issues? What role do law schools have to play in this effort? Our speakers have different experience and approach these issues from different perspectives.
