Bass's panel includes other distinguished women attorneys and the general counsel of Harley-Davidson, Inc.. The group will provide tips on how to achieve partnership at a law firm, how to make a successful transition from associate to partner, and how to provide better client service. The goals of this program will be to provide practical advice for associates looking to climb the ladder at their law firms.
