Attendees and sponsors can sign up for this year’s conference, 2016 Annual Meeting and CLE: Embrace Your Hire Power, through Eventbrite or by contacting TWL directly via email or social media.
Come join us and see incredible speakers talking about the issues that face women lawyers:
Nicole Sheindlin – “All Rise – Maximizing Our Impact Through Mentoring” (with Mentor Robin Schlaff, Attorney, and Mentee Crystal Luna). Nicole is the daughter of two judges— Honorable Gerald Sheindlin, retired New York Supreme Court Judge and the famous “Judge Judy” Sheindlin, retired Supervising Judge of the New York State Family Court. When Nicole was growing up, family conversation revolved around fairness and public policy, in addition to the normal childhood squabbles and petty grievances. Nicole worked for 15 years as a public defender in the Bronx for the Legal Aid Society’s Criminal Defense Division. While there, she handled all facets of criminal cases from arraignment through plea or trial. In 2006, Nicole began looking for a more proactive way to work with the community. She launched what ultimately turned out to be her new full-time job: the Her Honor Mentoring Program.
