WLP Fall Speaker Series: Deputy City Attorney, Heather Aubry

Heather Aubry, Esq.

Women's Leadership Project (WLP)

According to Black Enterprise magazine, the legal profession continues to be one of the most challenging industries for African American women and other women of color.  Although the number of women of color in law school has skyrocketed over the past few decades, women of color need strong mentoring, academic preparation, and institutional support to overcome sexist, racist barriers in the legal profession.  

On October 23rd, the WLP is proud to present Deputy City Attorney Heather Aubry at Washington Prep High School.  Ms. Aubry is a native of South Los Angeles, a former National Merit scholar, and a graduate of U.C. Berkeley (B.A., Political Science) and UCLA Law School. In addition to serving with the City Attorney’s office for over twenty years, she is currently a member of the State Bar's Commission on Judicial Nominees Evaluations, which evaluates candidates for judicial appointment at the request of the Governor.  Ms. Aubry will discuss her distinguished career as a prosecutor, advocate with the John M. Langston Bar Association (the local African American Bar Association), and community member.  

The talk will be held in Lecture Hall, room 1306 at 8:45 a.m. For further info please contact Sikivu Hutchinson,
