Pictured above are (l to r) Courtney L. Engelke ’11 and Emilie Kennedy ’11.
Two FIU Law alumni, Courtney L. Engelke ’11, an associate at at Colson Hicks Eidson, and Emilie Kennedy ’11, an associate at Lipscomb, Eisenberg & Baker, P.L., have been elected to the Florida Association for Women Lawyers’ Board of Directors.
Founded in 1951, the Florida Association for Women Lawyers strives to propel women lawyers into economic, social and leadership spheres of power. This is exemplified by their mission:
“To actively promote gender equality and the leadership roles of FAWL’s members in the legal profession, judiciary and community at large. To achieve these goals, FAWL will uphold the highest standard of integrity, honor and courtesy in the legal profession, promote reform in law, and facilitate administration of justice.”
We recently caught up with Engelke and Kennedy to discuss what prompted them to run for FAWL’s Board of Directors.
