Should I stay or should I go?

The New York State Diversity Coalition presents a panel discussion on:

“To Stay or To Go”

Please join them for a candid discussion with a panel of diverse lawyers on whether to stay in legal services or go on to private practice or government. How do you deal with the pressures of salary, law school loans, children, aging parents, difficult clients, work and the isolation of being one of only a few diverse lawyers in our offices? What can legal services managers and programs do to promote retention of diverse, new lawyers? A wine and cheese reception will follow.
