Past Events

Thank you for joining WLSA at the 2014 Edith House Lecture:

The Edith House Committee was honored to host Ms. Teresa Wynn Roseborough, executive vice president, general counsel, and corporate secretary for The Home Depot. Mrs. Roseborough attended the School of Law on April 9, 2014 and shared her insights as a woman in the judiciary and a woman in the law generally. 

Ms. Roseborough is responsible for all of Home Depot's legal functions worldwide ranging from securities to intellectual property in addition to overseeing the company's government relations and corporate security services. With more than 25 years of legal experience, Ms. Roseborough has also served as deputy general counsel for MetLife, deputy assistant attorney general for the U.S. Department of Justice and as a judicial clerk for Justice John Paul Stevens of the U.S. Supreme Court and Judge James Dickson Phillip of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit. In 2009, the Network Journal named her one of the 25 Influential Black Women in Business, and she was named one of America's top black attorneys by Black Enterprise in 2000.

 

2013 Diversity on the Bench Event

WLSA was pleased to cohost the Diversity on the Bench Event along with ACS, ALSA, and BLSA. 

Panelists:
Judge Carla Wong McMillian was appointed to the GA Court of Appeals by Gov. Nathan Deal on January 24, 2013. Born and raised in Augusta, Georgia, she is the first Asian Pacific American state appellate judge ever to be appointed in the Southeast. She is also a proud law dawg. 
U.S. Magistrate Judge Justin Anand was appointed to the U.S. Magistrate Court for the N.D. GA in Feb. 2012, at the age of 39. A graduate of Harvard Law, he previously worked as an associate at the Wall Street firm Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton. 
Superior Court Judge Gail Tusan was appointed to the State Court of Fulton County by then-Gov. Zell Miller in 1992.  Alongside her decorated career on the bench, which spans 29 years, are her examples of civic engagement as the President of the Atlanta Legal Aid Society and Georgia Association of Black Women Attorney (GABWA)

 

It is a tradition for WLSA to host Wildly Successful Women events where we invite speakers to give a lecture about their career paths, experience, and answer any and all questions students may have. Events are planned for the future so keep an eye on your e-mails and the WLSA website!
