Women’s History Month had its origins as a national celebration with a 1987 presidential proclamation. The law passed by Congress marked the month of March with observances to honor the achievements of American women in a variety of fields, including the law.
To celebrate Women’s History Month this year, we’ve asked attorneys at Waters Kraus & Paul to participate in a roundtable discussion on their experiences in the field of law. Our participants included attorneys Leila Mustafa, Kay Gunderson Reeves, Elizabeth Post, Susan Ulrich, and Waters Kraus & Paul partners Leslie MacLean and Caitlyn Silhan.
Celebrating Women in Law this Women’s History Month
Waters Kraus & Paul has always been committed to promoting equality and women’s advancement in the legal field. That is why in honor of this year’s Women’s History Month, we stand to proudly amplify the voices and reflections of a few of the many women at our firm through a “virtual” roundtable.
In this series of interviews, we asked our female attorneys various questions about the trials and tribulations of law school, the unparalleled experience of being an attorney during a global pandemic, and most importantly, the prevalent gender disparity in the legal profession.
The personal and professional experiences shared by these women are a testament to their accomplishments in our own firm, as well as their invaluable contributions to a world in need of sustained advocacy for civil rights and women’s rights. We are proud of the vital role our female attorneys have had in bettering our legal practice.
