Joint YLS & CFAWL Event: #MeToo Panel & Roundtable Discussion
Location: 
Orange County Courthouse, Judicial Conference Room

This is a free event. CFAWL and the OCBA YLS are jointly hosting a CLE to discuss the #MeToo movement. What started as a hashtag on social media in an attempt to demonstrate the prevalence of sexual assault and harassment, has ultimately elevated the global consciousness surrounding the obstacles that women encounter in their daily lives. Join our panelists as they discuss the #MeToo movement and recent legal trends in regard to sexual assault and sexual harassment, both in and out of the workplace. Lunch will be provided. After the lunchtime panel discussion, you may choose to stay and participate in an optional roundtable discussion. Three CLE credits are offered. RSVP to Lauren Millcarek, Lauren.Millcarek@hklaw.com and Lisa Thomas, lthomas@thefloridafirm.com.
