L.A. Law's Jill Eikenberry at Sept. 19 Leadership Program

Speaker Photo Jill Eikenberry, one of the stars of the long-running television series "L.A. Law" will be the featured speaker at the Thursday, Sept. 19 Chancellor’s Leadership Institute program.

Eikenberry played lawyer Ann Kelsey and earned four Emmy nominations, two Golden Globe nominations and a Golden Globe Award. She played opposite her husband Michael Tucker in the series.

She co-produced a one-hour documentary for NBC titled "Destined to Live," which dealt with the emotional aspects of breast cancer, from diagnosis to recovery. She battled the disease in 1986 and was aware of the importance of letting other women know that they were not alone and could recover and lead full and normal lives.

Join us for a candid conversation with Eikenberry about playing a woman lawyer on network television in a groundbreaking role, being married to a lawyer on television, and life as a breast cancer survivor as well as an activist for breast cancer research and early detection.

The program begins at 4 p.m. at The CLE Conference Center on the 10th floor of the Wanamaker Building, Market and Juniper streets and is followed by a wine and cheese reception. Admission is $25 for Bar Association members and $35 for non-members. Click here to register. This Chancellor's Leadership Institute program is sponsored by Kaplan Leaman Wolfe Court Reporting & Litigation Support and The Dispute Resolution Institute.
