WIL Presents Award to Nancy Van Slooten at Annual Conference Reception

JRCLS WIL Chair, Karen Clemes, presents award at Reception

Nancy Van Slooten, Award Recipient, Former International Chair of JRCLS
 During JRCLS’s recent annual conference, the International Women in Law Committee (WIL) hosted a reception for all attendees.   WIL was pleased to present its first annual WIL Service Award to Nancy Van Slooten for her many years of service to JRCLS, including previously serving as the first female International Chair of the JRCLS. During the reception, WIL Chair Karen Clemes reminded attendees of WIL’s mission:  “We affirm the strength and contributions that women lawyers bring to their legal practices, communities, and families. We strive to promote fairness and equal opportunities for these women.” A major goal of WIL is to encourage full participation of women lawyers in JRCLS – whether they are practicing full-time or part-time, working in a non-legal role, or not practicing at this time – and to help them feel welcome and safe in such participation.
