    We have rescheduled the inaugural SE Women Litigators Conference for Thursday, March 24, 2022, at the Atlanta Zoo. Our keynote speakers have been confirmed, so the program remains the same.

    We will still have an opening reception and dine-arounds at The Ellis hotel the evening before; we’re working on another room block there.

    We will open registration for those who did not register in 2020 in Fall 2021. Stay tuned and thank you!


    Women litigators in Alabama, Georgia, Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee are teaming up to support, educate and advance women civil defense litigators in the first Southeastern Women Litigators Conference to be held at a future date. 

    This one-day seminar will combine speakers and panelists who will discuss developing leadership and career building skills. The presentations will also explore challenges, risks and rewards on the path to having a fulfilling and productive career for women lawyers. 

    Keynote speaker is Cindy McGovern, CEO of Orange Leaf Consulting, a Wall Street bestselling author and international speaker. She helps companies and individuals grow their businesses. Her best selling book "Every Job is a Sales Job - How to Use the Art of Selling to Win at Work" may be bought at a reduced price to registrants.
