‘Careers for Lawyers in Higher Education’ Panel to Be Co-Hosted by Women in Leadership Initiative and Women in Law Association
On April 7 from noon to 1 p.m. ET, Syracuse University’s Women in Leadership Initiative (WiL) and Women in Law Association will offer a panel discussion titled “Careers for Lawyers in Higher Education.” This discussion will feature four highly accomplished women lawyers who have successfully applied their law experience to diverse careers in academia.
Interested members of the Syracuse University and SUNY-ESF campus community can visit this link to register. There is no charge to attend.
Offering insights into opportunities and pathways for young lawyers to pursue careers in higher education, this hour-long discussion will feature:
- Alyssa N. Campbell, Esq., director of equal opportunity and inclusion, Office of Equal Opportunity, Inclusion and Resolution Services
- Denise C. Dyce, Esq., director of labor relations, labor and employment counsel, Department of Human Resources
- Abby R. Perer, Esq., associate general counsel for litigation and compliance, Office of University Counsel
- Brittany Grimes Zaehringer, Esq., MSSA, senior associate vice president for operations and strategic initiatives, Division of Enrollment and the Student Experience
Each of these women worked in diverse settings prior to a career at Syracuse University. They will share powerful stories about their personal professional journeys, advice for early-career lawyers considering a career in academia and the day-to-day life of a lawyer working in higher education. The panel will be moderated by College of Law J.D. Candidate Margaret Santandreu ’22, president of the Women Law Students Association.
The WiL Initiative seeks to build strong leaders that can adapt rapidly to change and adopt new skills to keep teams and organizations moving forward. Following participation in events, individuals will be asked to contribute their thoughts, interests and goals to help guide the development of future programming.
