Women’s Law Association of Ontario - Alternative Careers in Law

The Women's Law Association of Ontario (WLAO) and the Law Society of Upper Canada will be presenting a program on alternative careers in law the evening of May 6th. From the program:
Not sure if your hard-earned law degree gives you what you need? Ready for a career change or just interested in learning about the hidden opportunities in and outside of law? Join us for our 3rd Annual panel of successful and influential women lawyers who have found their niche.

The panel looks outstanding:
Ritu Bhasin - Director of Student & Associate Programmes - Stikeman Elliott LLP

Mayo Moran, Dean, Faculty of Law, University of Toronto

Dorothy Quann, Vice president, General Counsel and Secretary - Xerox Canada Ltd.

Anna Kinastowski, City Solicitor, City of Toronto

For more details, see the registration form.

I think it's fabulous that these programs are being offered, but i have to admit i'm disappointed that no group seems to offer a program like this that is open to men. I don't expect WLAO to offer such a program because that's not their mandate, but is there a general assumption within the profession that men wouldn't be interested in alternative legal careers?

Women now represent 50 per cent or more of law school graduates in Ontario, according to the report.
