Women in law conference
A chance to broaden minds and challenge stereotypes
Our annual Women in Law conference is a great opportunity for both men and women to get together and discuss the challenges facing women in today’s legal industry, and the ways in which we can all support each other to overcome these hurdles.
The conference consists of a panel Q&A with Shearman & Sterling partners, associates and trainees followed by the opportunity to network over drinks and canapés.
The theme for this year’s conference is Woman in Law: My Story. Our panellists will reflect on their careers so far, affirming that one size does not fit all when it comes to progressing in law. Panellists include partners Sonny Udovicic and Susanna Charlwood, associate Joe Hutchinson and trainee Frances Burchall.
