About Us & the On the Record Podcast
Though we come from different schools, states, and backgrounds, one things unites the 2022 DWLA Leadership Class beyond our status as law students. We are all first-generation law students. This was a passion project for many of us – a way to democratize, equalize, and break down the gatekeeping for information for law students and female lawyers on how to interview, how to build a brand, how to network, and overall how to thrive in this profession.. We want to continue the DWLA tradition to lift each other up and hope this podcast instills confidence and educates its listeners..
Our DWLA leadership class created this project as a resource for young and aspiring lawyers covering different topics that we as women entering the legal profession wish we knew about before coming to law school. Each episode seeks guidance on a relevant topic from an inspiring female lawyer in the DFW area. We were honored and privileged to meet and learn from judges, professors, litigators, dealmakers, and change makers right here in our own community. This podcast is not only about education and community but about lifting up and standing on the shoulders of the great women defining this profession today.
We believe that women in law or who are interested in law should listen to this podcast because it provides honest, accurate, and invaluable lessons and stories from women in law.
As a woman, it can be difficult to find resources or a community specifically addressing the challenges we may encounter in law school and in the legal profession. This podcast breaks down some of those barriers by providing access to generational knowledge and creating connection and community. We hope you enjoy this podcast as much as we enjoyed making it!
