It's Here! Don't Miss This Video

Forget YouTube. The cool spot to view the latest hot video is the Law Society's website.

"Spectacular." "Important." "Ground-breaking." "Should be seen by all LDS attorneys." These are a few of the comments heard in the hall after the Women in the Law panel at the annual Dallas conference in February, now posted online.

The panel, entitled "Women and Men Working Together in the Law," featured three women and two men attorneys, experienced and less-experienced, from New York City, Boston, Denver, Dallas, and Salt Lake City. Among the issues addressed forthrightly, sometimes humorously, were:

  • Why is this an issue for LDS lawyers?
  • Can a male attorney mentor or network with a female attorney?
  • How can a female attorney help a male attorney with client development (and vice versa)?
  • Can a male and a female attorney effectively co-manage a case together?
  • What are the concerns and sensitivities of the non-lawyer spouse?

    To view the video of the panel, go to http://www.jrcls.org/wil and then on the right side of the page click on the link "View the proceedings of the conference here. Men and Women Working Together in Law."

    Thanks to the Dallas conference committee and the JRCLS executive committee for making this video possible.

    Let us know what you think.

    1. It is great that WIL is organized and addressing these issues. As a male lawyer of over 40 years practice I think we need to be aware of, and not shy away from, gender issues within the legal profession and the Church. I have seen great strides over my years of experience in the progress of women in the legal profession. I hope it continues. This blog will only hasten good things.
