On April 20, 2022, the Career Advancement and Retention Committee hosted its first event of the year with guest speaker, Commissioner Myrlys Stockdale Coleman. The event was an intimate, honest conversation about career decisions and challenges, and turned into an impromptu discussion about the various paths to the bench. Special thanks to Commissioner Stockdale Coleman for her honesty and vulnerability in discussing her own path.
CAR is excitedly planning its next event. We are considering a panel discussion regarding the current legal market, how to leverage one’s position with a lateral placement in both the public and private sector, and how lateral / partner (both equity and non-equity) placements can be structured.
