A CLE program centered on issues of concern to female attorneys has been very successful for the Lafayette (LA) Bar Association, and is celebrating its fifth anniversary.

The "Running in Heels Women's CLE" offers both practical programs of concern to women, and a networking opportunity, said Claire Oliver, LBA marketing director.

“We want to get women into a group so they can meet and compare lifestyles” and figure out how the other women deal with typical life and career situations, Oliver said.

While most speakers are women, last year’s program featured a panel of male attorneys who spoke about obstacles women might face, and suggestions on how to deal with them.

Topics for this year include:

• Put your best foot forward: Women & Negotiation Skills;
• Keeping your feet on the ground: Thoughts on Success and Work/Life Balance from Professional Women.
