NAWL Honors 9th Circuit Judge Nelson

OCBA Appellate Law Section member and Snell & Wilmer appellate partner M.C. Sungaila passes along the following invitation:

"I invite you to join me and an audience of dynamic women attorneys at the National Association of Women Lawyers Mid-Year meeting being held in Los Angeles at the Omni Hotel downtown on Friday, February 23rd.  The Mid-Year is one of NAWL's premiere meetings, and is always a great event.

"The program features a stellar lineup. In addition to a keynote by Professor Emerita Barbara Babcock (who can be counted on to deliver a barn-burner), there will be panels featuring O’Melveny & Myers managing partner and LA Sparks co-owner Carla Christofferson, newly-appointed Judge Holly Fujie, and a program titled “Wine & Wisdom!” This year's Mid-Year also provides some valuable CLE and career enhancing sessions, including a program by Karen Kahn on advancement issues and an ethics CLE program set to music (I know, only in LA). 

"At the luncheon awards program, NAWL will honor Warner Bros. and Ninth Circuit Judge Dorothy Nelson [pictured right]."

"Of course, the Mid-Year also provides the opportunity for you to meet exciting women attorneys from law firms, in-house legal departments, and government agencies.

"This is an era of continuing change for law firms and legal departments alike, and the need to strengthen our professional and leadership skills has never been more compelling.  Please join me at NAWL'S Mid-Year – I promise it will inspire you to reach “for the stars” in 2012!
