Columbia Law School invites you to a Women in M&A Panel Discussion presented by the American Bar Association’s Women in M&A Task Force.  The panel, comprised of distinguished women practicing M&A at some of North America’s top law firms, will share strategies for success inspired by their own challenges and accomplishments, and will seek to demystify the world of M&A by addressing topics such as what you can do to prepare for a career in M&A, balancing a demanding career with a fulfilling personal life, finding mentors and more.  Whether you are a woman or ally interested in M&A specifically, business law generally, or just want to find out more information about a career in M&A, we think you will benefit from attending the event and learning about this important topic.
