Friday, October 28, 2016

In celebration of its own women leaders and in an effort to nurture women who will lead in the future, the School of Law this year is spearheading Georgia WILL (Georgia Women in Law Lead). Events in the next twelve months will feature women, including members of the Georgia Law community, who are national and international pathbreakers in law, business, and public service. One highlight event will occur at the annual meeting of the Association of American Law Schools in San Francisco, where Georgia Law will host a brainstorming session for women professors who are or are interested in becoming law school or university administrators; another, at Georgia Law’s Athens main campus, where IntLawGrrls contributors will convene in March for a conference marking the blog’s 10th birthday.
