#MeToo in the Law Firm: Lessons on Conducting Effective Trainings to Reduce Harassment

In February 2018, the American Bar Association passed a resolution urging employers in the legal profession to adopt and enforce policies and procedures that prohibit, prevent and promptly redress harassment, including developing initiatives that foster effective training. In 2016, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission issued a comprehensive report that concluded that much of the harassment training conducted for the past 30 years doesn’t work. So, what is a law firm to do? Come learn about the latest on harassment in law firms and what you can do to prevent it.

A loyal Longhorn, Allison attended the University of Texas School of Law where she graduated with honors, after serving on the Texas Law Review.

After law school, Allison clerked for Lee Yeakel, now Judge of the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas in Austin.
