Over 100 women participated in the fourth annual Women in the Law Conference which was held at NUSL on Friday, May 11, 2012.  Gloria Larson, President, Bentley University, delivered the keynote and was extremely well received.  Conference co-chair chair, Navjeet Bal '89, stated, "This year's conference exceeded our expectations; women from diverse practice backgrounds and class years participated and everyone walked away with more support, wonderful ideas for next career steps and new friendships."   

This year we introduced a speed mentoring component to the day.  Kelly Douglas '92, conference co-chair, stated, "This added part of the day was a wonderful way for graduates at every career level to focus intensely on their career trajectory.  They received immediate, practical career advice."
