Introduction and Keynote

Abdus-Salaam, Sheila; Lopez, Elise

Introductory remarks by EWOC 2016-2017 President Elise Lopez. Conference keynote speech by Judge Sheila Abdus-Salaam.

It’s also about striking that balance between fitting into this generations-old institution of legal practice, but also pushing boundaries and keeping the dialogue going about issues that are relevant to women of color
