The Organization for the Advancement of Women in Law (OAWL) is launching a new Sisters In Law mentoring program to pair women law students with practicing women attorneys.
The program is designed to help women law students become successful legal professionals, specifically, to help them navigate the unique challenges particular to women attorneys. It is not intended as an employment program.
Although Sisters In Law is sponsored by OAWL, it is open to all female OU Law students. OAWL welcomes participation from all women attorneys in all areas of practice, of all experience levels and even those who are not located in Oklahoma.
Matches will occur early in the fall with a kick-off event, likely in September, to be announced. The requirement is for a one-year commitment, but OAWL welcomes matches to remain through graduation if both parties wish to do so.
The deadline to register for practicing attorneys is August 12, 2019. The registration form for volunteer attorneys can be found here.
If you have questions, please email Professor Mary Sue Backus at email@example.com.
