President's Message

Well, I can’t say September wasn’t an interesting month. 

As our October newsletter goes to press, the ultimate outcome of the September 27, 2018 testimony of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford on the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court remains to be seen.  Many stories can be told, and are being told, regarding this moment in our history, and as women lawyers, we likely have our own unique perspectives.  Those of us with experience as prosecutors or criminal defense attorneys, may be reflecting on cases we’ve handled in the past involving sexual assault survivors, including how we saw others view the survivor’s credibility and our views of any direct or cross examination that was conducted.  Those of us on the civil side, like me, may be reflecting more generally on our experiences of a female’s credibility and demeanor on the witness stand, among many other topics that our non-lawyer friends and family members may be raising with us.  Because there is definitely a conversation going on right now.
