The Magic of Finding a Unicorn
By: Maria Klutinoty Edwards, Esq.
It is no secret that women are outnumbered in the legal profession, and that is especially true in litigation. In my almost seven years of practice, I now notice it more when I am not the only woman in the room- because usually I am. Especially in business litigation. Opposing counsel are men. The clients are mainly men. The defendants? They tend to be men as well.

By: Sydney McLafferty, Esq.
The Women’s Caucus has kicked off the 2015-2016 year with a bang!  In conjunction with President Gallucci’s plan to involve OAJ in a variety of philanthropic efforts throughout the year, the Women’s Caucus has taken on the first fundraiser of the year.

Women's Caucus update
By: Sydney McLafferty
At the Winter Convention this past November, Women’s Caucus Chair Sydney McLafferty and Executive Committee Member, Ellen McCarthy were pleased to present a professionalism session entitled  Understanding The Legal, Neurological And Psychological Aspects Of Tolerance. Our speaker, Scott Warrick, is a consultant in the legal aspects of human resources.  With a juris doctorate of his own, Mr. Warrick brought highly specialized information with him to explain how and why lawyers can get it all wrong (or right!) in handling what should otherwise be easy relations between males and females in the workplace.  As Mr. Warrick said, if you wouldn’t want to read it on the front page of the newspaper – DON’T DO IT!

Women and men have an equal interest in fostering change, and our clients will benefit from the effort. Gender inequality is a pervasive issue that affects the legal profession, the adequate and fair representation of our clients, and trial lawyers' ultimate success. Women and men must do their part, starting with recognizing and raising awareness of the issue.

Women's Caucus
This year’s Women’s Caucus got off to a great start at the May convention where we heard from OAJ member and State Representative Connie Pillich (Cincinnati).  Connie’s inspiring discussion focused on how she has relied upon her experience as a trial lawyer to her work with fellow legislators, many of whom are not lawyers, as to the real world implications of the legislation they create.
