Gender Wednesday

This talk will focus on what it's really like for women who go into the law, covering the different possibilities a law degree can offer; gender issues that arise in law school and the profession; and the opportunity and, yes, authority that a law degree can provide women.

Faith Herndon is a Durham trial lawyer who for over 25 years has been representing employees in a variety of work-related matters including sexual harassment, discrimination, and executive negotiations. Faith is active in national and state bar associations and operates her own law practice. She received her J.D. from New York University School of Law in 1988 and her B.A. and M.A. from Yale University.
