Layke Martin, Boyd School of Law assistant dean for external relations, attended the 2015 National Association for Law Placement (NALP) Diversity and Inclusion Summit on June 12 in Chicago.
At the conference, she was part of a panel focused on “Advancing Women’s Leadership in Law School and Beyond.” The goal of the discussion was to share ideas for developing successful programs for promoting women’s leadership at a law school or firm, and offering background and planning information to enable participants the ability to put the programs into practice.
The NALP is an organization of legal career professionals committed to expanding diversity and inclusion in the legal profession. The conference provides a forum for the exchange of information about the current challenges and innovations surrounding the issues of diversity and inclusion in the legal employment arena.
As Assistant Dean for External Relations, Dean Martin provides leadership and strategic direction to the law school’s Career Development, Alumni Relations, Development, and Events departments.
