Now in its third year, the NAWL Rising List is made up of individuals advancing in their careers, helping others advance in their careers, and fighting to advance women under the law. This recognition is especially important in highlighting those who evoke NAWL’s mission to provide leadership, a collective voice, and essential resources to advance women in the legal profession and advocate for the equality of women under the law. Erin will be recognized at NAWL’s Mid-Year Meeting on March 16-17, 2023.
