Student Invitation to the ACBA WLD Business Development Summit

The Career Services Office is providing registration for three (3) students to attend
the ACBA Women in the Law’s 3rd Annual Business Development Summit
to be held on July 23, 2015.

Business development is a critical element to being a successful lawyer, regardless of where you are in your career (junior, mid-career or senior attorney) or where you are practicing (law firm, in-house, non-profit or government).

But what are the characteristics that make a successful rainmaker? Research shows that the characteristics of rainmakers are quantifiable and not bound by gender. This half-day program will explore the research and provide practical tools for developing the important traits that will lead you to success.

The 3rd Annual Summit IGE/WLD Business Development Summit for Women attorneys will feature a keynote address by Patricia K. Gillette, Esq., a panel discussion with successful business developers from law firms and in-house, and facilitated breakout sessions designed to help you better understand and hone these traits so that you can incorporate them into your own business development efforts to create and grow your book of business. The half-day of dynamic programming will conclude with a networking lunch.

The program will be held on Thursday, July 23, 2015, at the Marriott City Center (near Consol Energy Center) from 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.  Registration and continental breakfast begin at 8:30 a.m.  Students must be able to attend the entire program.
