So interesting and enjoyable
I have enjoyed the first two podcasts and am eager to hear more. I don’t have a legal background but I enjoy hearing the inside anecdotes. And as a female I enjoy hearing how they have handled situations that all women in business have faced in some form. It’s very heartening that they are encouraging females to step into the trial arena. Thanks for such a unique podcast.
Ready for more from these 2 successful female attorneys! From someone who’s not an attorney, I appreciate their advice to get yourself “out there” early in your career. Best knowledge comes from courtroom experience not textbooks, sitting in lecture hall, or sitting behind a desk. I found this to be true in field of banking and education.
They make me want to be a lawyer!
