Finding Justice: Women and the Law
Roxanne’s distinguished career has been devoted to civil justice - representing underserved people and those who have been harmed by others. She founded the Civil Justice Association, was the first woman president of the Association of Trial Lawyers of America, and was one of the first two women to become a United States Attorney in the Department of Justice. Her keynote presentation will include entertaining and inspiring stories of how she has assisted women in need throughout her remarkable career.
