The Center for Girls’ Leadership will host its first program, “Pathways to Leadership: Women in the Law,” on Saturday, Feb. 25, at the University of St. Thomas School of Law. The event will include a panel presentation and short mock trial. The panel will feature at least four attorneys with UST connections.

Open to women in high school and college, the event will be held from 9 a.m. to noon (check-in begins at 8:30 a.m.) in the Frey Moot Courtroom, located in the School of Law on St. Thomas’ Minneapolis campus.

Through the Pathways to Leadership series, the Center for Girls’ Leadership, a nonprofit organization, teaches young women in high school and college about possible future career options in various industries. Each program features a panel with women from the community discussing their individual leadership journey, as well as small group discussions and activities.

The program series is presented with help from the Women Law Student Association.
