Please join the APABA-SV Women in Law Committee for its annual informative and engaging conversation with trailblazing female APA attorneys who have established themselves as respected pioneers in their areas of practice.

Our panelists will be:

  • Honorable Erica Yew, Judge for the Superior Court of California, County of Santa Clara
  • Winifred Kao, Litigation Director at the Asian Law Caucus
  • Anna Han, Associate Professor of Law and Director of the Center for Global Law and Policy at Santa Clara University School of Law

Our speakers will share how they navigated the legal and business environment to arrive at their current positions, and will share practical advice on maximizing professional development. They will also share their thoughts on how we can best work to improve diversity and inclusion in the legal profession, both as individual attorneys and as members of a growing collective of female APA attorneys.

A reception at Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati will follow. The conversation and reception are generously sponsored by Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati.
