UCLA Law Women LEAD and the UCLA School of Law proudly present the inaugural LEAD Summit. UCLA Law Women LEAD, which was co-founded by Paul Hastings partner Nancy Abell, was created to advance women’s careers in the legal profession and build a stronger cadre of female leaders of the profession.

The LEAD Summit will bring together UCLA Law’s community of alumnae and students to share insights on advancing the profession, promoting equity, and achieving excellence. The day-long event will feature dynamic speakers and smaller roundtables on topics ranging from leadership styles to rainmaking to career pathways, all with a focus on expanding impact. Paul Hastings associate Felicia Davis, as well as leaders from around the country, including California’s Chief Justice, Tani Cantil-Sakauye and CEO of Ellevate and Ellevest, Sallie Krawcheck are just a few of the speakers on the Summit’s agenda.
