Rethinking “Having it All”: A Solo and Small Firm Perspective on Parenting While Lawyering 

Apr. 4, 2019
Toronto ON

OBA Women Lawyers Forum PROGRAM | 11:30 AM to 2:00 PM

The way in which women are practicing law is changing. Women who previously left the practice of law altogether to raise young children are increasingly forging their own path, their own way. This new path is not without its challenges. Join us for candid discussions with solo and small firm practitioners in the midst of their own revolutions.

If you are thinking about having a child and want to hear from lawyer parents, or are considering making a career change with young children, our accomplished practitioners will share their career journeys, along with their best strategies to balance parenting and practicing, while providing insight into how to negotiate partnerships and replacements while on leave. Small break-out group sessions will follow the panel discussion.
