This six-session workshop explores the challenges women lawyers face in a variety of legal workplaces, including private practice, in-house law departments, government agencies and nonprofit organizations. Students will also use interactive exercises to develop skills to navigate these challenges. The workshop is open to all students. It is required of those upper-class students in the spring semester who are enrolled in a WLE Externship. WLE externs may earn academic credit by working for governmental and non-profit national or local organizations that focus on providing direct legal services to women or that work on policy issues affecting women. These include the National Women’s Law Center, the Women’s Law Center of Maryland, the House of Ruth and the Tahirih Justice Center. Grading is on a Credit/No Credit basis.
