IU McKinney Collaborates on Inaugural Feminist Law Networking Event
The Feminist Law Society at the IU Robert H. McKinney School of law and the Feminist Law Forum at IU Maurer Law co-hosted the inaugural Gender Equality Happy Hour on March 22, 2013. The event was held in the law school’s atrium.
“It’s important for feminists from the legal community (and beyond the legal community) to stay engaged, build connections, and support one another,” said FLS President Lela McCoy, a 2L. “Gender Equality Happy Hour did just that!”
Over 50 people attended the event, including Professors Jennifer Drobac and Cynthia Baker, which was organized as a networking opportunity for law students and attorneys. The positive response prompted organizers to decide to make this an annual event, and they hope to host it at the IU Maurer School of Law in 2014.
