“Learning to Lead” can help launch women’s legal career, says former women’s commission chair

By John Glynn

Mary B. Cranston, former chair of the ABA Commission on Women in the Profession, calls “Learning to Lead: What Really Works for Women in Law” the definitive leadership guide for female lawyers.  She praises author Gindi Eckel Vincent’s ability to synthesize research and create transformative case studies. Cranston, who served as advisor for the publication, says, “This [book] is enough to launch your career.” 

“Learning to Lead: What Really Works for Women in the Law” is published by the commission.  The book provides key concepts to help working women hone their skills. It also includes analysis of recent research on women in the legal profession, as well as interviews with lawyers and judges “who have led their way straight to the top.” The final chapter features total leadership makeovers of real-life lawyers of different ages, career stages and practices. Readers are encouraged to apply the lessons shared to transform their “career confusion into clarity and their limbo into leadership.”
