The New Mexico Defense Lawyers Association proudly presents Part V of “Power Lessons for the Female Litigator,” a
dynamic seminar designed for New Mexico lawyers. This
seminar will enhance the skills of all female attorneys as they
work together to represent their clients, advance in their firms,
agencies, offices and beyond. It is designed for women who
want to refine their skills and gain practical, diverse perspectives
on balance, ambition and achievement. The seminar addresses the
unique challenges women face in the practice of law and offers an
alternative model for success, based on our distinctive communication
styles and personalities. It is also an opportunity to network with other
accomplished women lawyers. Law firm managers and clients who want to
recruit and retain talented female attorneys are also encouraged to attend.
