Sharon Porcellio to Discuss Achieving Equality for Women in the Courtroom and in ADR: If Not Now, When?

November 14, 2018

Recently, the Commercial & Federal Litigation Section of the New York State Bar Association prepared the report: IF NOT NOW, WHEN? Achieving Equality For Women In The Courtroom and In ADR. With the full support and commitment of the section’s leadership, these female alumnae section chairs met and formed an ad hoc task force devoted to the issue of the apparent dearth of women litigators in the courtroom and women who serve as arbitrators and mediators in complex commercial and international arbitrations and mediations. Based on the survey results, the task force found continued disparity and gender imbalance in the courtroom and ADR cases.

Speakers:
Sharon M. Porcellio, Bond, Schoeneck & King
Stephanie Ball, NAM (National Arbitration and Mediation)
Elizabeth A. Edmondson, Jenner & Block LLP
Carrie B. Freed, PMI Global Services Inc.

Webcast: November 14, 2018 at 1 p.m.
