Center for Women in Law Meets with Association for Women in Science to Discuss the Merits of Networking Across Career Barriers

The Center for Women in Law and the Association for Women in Science, Central Texas Chapter, met to discuss the various benefits of forging links with women in different areas of expertise, including an expanded network and decreased professional barriers.

Senior editor of Science Magazine with the American Association for the Advancement of Science Dr. Pam Hines emphasized the significance of effective communication between women in law and women in science, noting that an operational knowledge of general science must be conveyed in order for lawyers to represent a complicated theory or piece of equipment successfully. The newfound relationship between the Center for Women and Law and the Association for Women in Science, Central Texas Chapter, provides opportunities to bridge this gap with networking and mutually educational mentorship programs.

The Center for Women in Law appreciates its connection with the Association for Women in Science, Central Texas Chapter, and the opportunities for women that our collaborative efforts will yield.
