Join us August 24-26 at the fabulous Marriott Harbor Beach Resort & Spa in Ft. Lauderdale to recharge your soul, support your fellow superwoman and reach back to those who follow in your footsteps.

Our goal is to bring together sister lawyers from around the state for fellowship, CLEs and networking. We have some exciting panels in store — addressing issues such as generational wealth, diversifying the field of lobbying, and balancing being “woke” at work.

We will be honoring 3 trailblazing judges of color. View our full agenda here.

If this is your first time — get ready!! If you are returning — thank you, welcome back, and bring a friend!
