Creating Space In Male Dominated Fields
Kathryn Rubino of Above the Law is joined by Jacqueline Duval, partner in Herrick, Feinstein’s Tax Department and the chair of the firm’s Family Office group for the Jabot Podcast, which is an offshoot of the Above the Law legal blog and is focused on the challenges women, people of color, LGBTQIA, and other diverse populations face in the legal industry.
The podcast discusses why Jacqueline went to law school in the first place and how she settled on tax law as a specialty. Jacqueline also provides advice for associates trying to figure out their ideal practice area. Kathryn and Jacqueline also talk about the twists in her career before achieving the brass ring of the profession, law firm partner. The podcast also covers how Jacqueline co-founded an accelerator law firm for women entrepreneurs and how she uses her current platform to help create space for women in male-dominated spaces like tech and family office investing.
