Minnesota Women Lawyers is pleased to announce The 2015 MWL Conference for Women in the Law, to be held on May 7 and 8th, 2015 in downtown Minneapolis.

The goal of the 2015 MWL Conference for Women in the Law is to collaborate across MWL's statewide community, providing high-value programming of interest to our diverse membership, and creating meaningful networking opportunities, all in the effort to advance MWL's mission.

The MWL Conference will begin with a reception and keynote presentation on Thursday, May 7th at Dorsey & Whitney LLP (50 South Sixth Street, Suite 1500 in Minneapolis). Minnesota Women Lawyers is pleased to welcome author and attorney Gindi Eckel Vincent, who will deliver the keynote presentation on Thursday. Gindi is Counsel for ExxonMobil in Houston and Author of Learning to Lead: What Really Works for Women in the Law. Learning to Lead provides a concise road map of the latest collective wisdom on leadership and applies those principles to women lawyers. It also features interviews with eleven women legal leaders who share their lessons learned and tips for success.

The MWL Conference will then continue on Friday at Loews Minneapolis Hotel (601 1st Avenue North, downtown Minneapolis). Friday will feature a full day of programming, geared towards the diverse practice areas and experience levels represented by MWL's membership.


Please Note: The Mayo Clinic Sports Medicine Center is currently under construction.  The skyway remains open to Loews Minneapolis Hotel. Follow the signs to the 2nd floor elevator, and proceed down to the 1st floor.  Then proceed to the Loews main lobby entrance.  Access directly to Loews is also available on the ground level, off 1st Avenue.

The MWL Conference will also incorporate MWL's 43rd Annual Meeting as a luncheon program on Friday, May 8th. Registration for the MWL Conference includes a ticket to the MWL Annual Meeting luncheon. MWL Annual Meeting tickets may also be purchased separately HERE.

Up to seven CLE credits will be applied for (including both ethics and elimination of bias credits). Final credits received will be based on actual sessions attended.
