Women in Law Section Meeting


Online registration for tomorrow's WIL luncheon is now closed. Please contact the event coordinator with any registration questions.

Join the Women in Law Section for their Tuesday, February 11, 2014 meeting from 12:00 to 1:30 p.m. at the CMBA Office.

Among all of the employers listed in the 2009-2010 NALP Directory of Legal Employers, only 6% of partners were minorities and 1.88% were minority women. In 2013, the percentage of minority partners rose to 7.1% and women minority partners rose to 2.26%. These numbers are heading in the right direction, but it is shocking to me that the percentages are still so low. The Women in Law Section's speaker on February 11th was part of the 1.88%.

At our next lunch, we welcome as our special guest, The Honorable Jessica E. Price Smith, United States Bankruptcy Judge for the Northern District of Ohio. Prior to being appointed to her 14-year judicial term in 2011, Judge Price Smith was a shareholder at Brouse McDowell, LPA. To be more precise, she was the first African American partner (male or female) in the history of the 94-year old firm! If you attend lunch on February 11th you will hear from a person who is generous with her time and willing to help others, who also balances professional responsibilities with two small children. You will meet a woman who is on the cutting edge of technology in and outside of the courtroom, who commands a room. She is a sharp, forward thinker. Although Judge Price Smith has reached the heights of our profession, I have a feeling she is not nearly finished yet and that she will continue to amaze us with her ambition and accomplishments long into the future.

Registration and lunch: 12:00 p.m.

Lunch is $5 for section members and $10 for non-section members.

Pre-pay for lunches - 5 lunches for $25 or 10 lunches for $50.

RSVP by 3:00 p.m. on February 10 to guarantee lunch.
