Wayne Law School to host Women in the Law panel

By | 2009-08-20T09:00:00-04:00 August 20th, 2009|News|

Being successful in law school and in one’s legal career is no easy feat. Individuals must be focused, determined and dedicated to the study of law – and they must succeed in balancing the demands of their personal lives as well.
Fortunately, Wayne State University Law School students and alumni can find a great deal of support.
The Wayne Law Career Services Office and the Wayne Law Alumni Association are co-sponsoring an upcoming panel discussion for women pursuing legal careers.
Women in the Law, which will offer a candid discussion about issues facing women lawyers, will be held from 12:15-1:15 p.m. on Sept. 3 in the Law School’s Spencer M. Partrich Auditorium.
Panelists will include professional women from various career backgrounds such as business, government and law. The panel will address finding a work/life balance, maternity leave, finding a mentor, being a leader, dealing with improper interview questions and more.
“I have a great support network now and I feel that this kind of support and insight would have been really helpful as a student,” said Kim Yapchai, event organizer and corporate counsel with Retail/Wholesale Group. “Students, alumni and friends will benefit from hearing the different viewpoints of people who have been through it.”
This panel is free and open to the public. For more information, visit
