Professional women are called to action by Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg in her 2013 book, Lean In: Women, Work and the Will to Lead.  By analyzing the stagnation of women's progress in leadership roles, despite parity in educational performance, Sandberg outlines a blueprint for building a satisfying career.  Let's be honest.  Women lawyers are cerebral, committed to their clients and causes, and proven experts at multi-tasking their professional, personal and philanthropic roles.  Such high levels of performance are riddled with internal and external challenges.  We will dissect issues of courtroom demeanor, negotiation tactics, emotional intelligence, law firm ascension, networking, mentoring and brass rings.  Women lawyers are problem solvers.  It's time to work on solutions for our progress in the legal profession.

The panel for this "Lean In for Lawyers" CLE program is the Honorable Brendette Brown-Green of the Tenth Judicial Circuit, Leigh Forstman of Pittman Dutton & Hellums PC, Allison Skinner of Cadence Bank, and Robin Mark of the U. S. Attorneys Office Northern District.

Approved by the Alabama State Bar MCLE Commission for 1.0 hour MCLE Credit (including 0 ethics).  Bring your own "brown bag" lunch at 11:30am - CLE portion of the program begins at 12:00 Noon and concludes at 1:00pm.  For additional information, please contact section representatives Kimberly Geisler ( or Rebecca Amthor ( - click here for registration form.
