Currently, women lawyers comprise only 17% of Supreme Court advocates.

Our distinguished panel will discuss the under-representation of women who argue before the Supreme Court and whether the Supreme Court bar is truly seeing an increase of women appearing before them.

Additionally, the panelists will discuss their career paths and how attorneys can build a career as an appellate attorney. 

The Amicus Committee thanks Morrison & Foerster LLP for sponsoring this program.
