Women in Law: Mentorship is Crucial for Leadership Roles

Women are becoming an undeniable force in the U.S. legal sector. Yet, despite such growth, women are still not well represented among legal leadership.

In a discussion hosted by Buffalo Business First, Lisa Coppola shares insights on the growth strategies and opportunities she leverages in her woman-led law firm. Coppola emphasizes key elements essential for the successful management of a firm driven by female leadership.

Awareness, Perception, and Active Listening

Possessing such abilities fosters stronger bonds with colleagues and clients alike. In the legal education system, these soft skills often receive less emphasis, yet they are pivotal in distinguishing exceptional attorneys from their more average counterparts.

Nurturing and Sharing Wisdom

In the legal sector, a reciprocal relationship of support between associates and leaders is deemed essential. The panel echoes this perspective on the particular importance of women in leadership roles actively mentoring female attorneys at the onset of their careers. This mentorship is paramount in fostering professional growth and success within the legal field.
