Welcome to The Forum! The Forum is a traditional listserv - only better! We developed The Forum to create a space for like-minded women to come together, connect, share ideas and get resources to take their legal practices - and their lives - to the next level. Our vision is a bigger and better life for all of us - inside and outside the courtroom.
We welcome all women trial lawyers to The Forum, regardless of practice area and regardless of which "side" you represent. At Trial By Woman and in The Forum, there are no "sides." We also welcome women who want to become trial lawyers and women who have been promised trial work but whose employers haven't delivered. This is a space for all of us. We are all women in a male-dominated field. The work we can do together and the efforts we make to build up ourselves and the women around us will enrich our practices, our lives and our profession.
The Forum is a traditional, e-mail-based listserv, in which you receive and post messages through your e-mail inbox. But, we've got more. We'll also offer educational videos and online video chats where we discuss strategies and practices that make us better women, better wives, better partners, better mothers, better lawyers and better humans. We believe strongly in exploring well outside the bounds of our profession to enrich ourselves, and we've done a lot of leg work over the years. In our Forum videos, we'll distill for you some key concepts that have helped us on our journeys.
We're thrilled you're here. So, let's get started.

Welcome to this positive and intentional space for women trial lawyers. We think it's overdue. Let's build this community together.
xoxo, Courtney and Theresa
