Prepared and Written for the Commission by Milana L. Hogan, Ed.D.
This unique book contains new research (beyond the original study that focused on large law firms) on grit and growth mindset, two traits that have been shown to shape the success of women lawyers. It also is a collection of 47 letters from successful women lawyers who have used these principles to advance in their careers. These women share their advice, insight, and experience as a female attorney who has achieved success in the practice of law, and this diverse group represents solo practice; small, medium, and large firms; government; nonprofits; and corporations.
