ISBA visits SIU School of Law

On April 11-12, 2008, the ISBA Standing Committees on Women and the Law and Women and Minority Participation visited SIU School of Law in Carbondale. Once there, the committees hosted a panel discussion with law students on success strategies in the legal profession. The ISBA also hosted, in cooperation with SIU School of Law, an evening reception for Illinois lawyers in the region as well as faculty and law students from SIU. The next day, the committees met together and held a strategic planning session followed by their own business meetings.
