Presentation: Overcoming Gender Bias In The Legal Profession

On September 19, 2015, Deborah A. Gubernick was a speaker at the International J. Reuben Clark Law Society’s Women in Law event held at Chapman University. The presentation was entitled “Gender Bias: How Do We Overcome It?” She and two other panelists addressed progress that has been made to eliminate bias, and ongoing hurdles contributing to perceived and actual biases, both in and out of the practice of law. Ms. Gubernick has been working in the legal field since 1994. She started her career as a paralegal and returned to law school after having three children. Her two-decades of experience in law firms allowed her to share unique insights. Ms. Gubernick’s law practice focuses on intellectual property protection and enforcement in the US and abroad, particularly in the apparel, action sports and related industries
