Roberta Romano on Research and Teaching in the Business-Law Related Area

Post to Twitter

One of the plenary sessions at the AALS Workshop on Women Rethinking Equality, June 21-22, 2011, was “Women as Scholars.”  I was honored to participate in the panel discussion with several other great women.

Roberta Romano (Yale; photo at right) spoke about research and teaching in the business-law related area.  My favorite line from her talk was, “[I]nvest in yourself and you will flourish.”

Professor Romano’s remarks are reproduced after the jump below with permission.

Excellent advice.

One Response to Roberta Romano on Research and Teaching in the Business-Law Related Area

  1. Anita Bernstein says:

    A wonderful speech. But I wonder whether one really needs expertise in mathematics to be a credible, high-contribution scholar in business law. Certainly the most enduring works in this field have been nonquantitative. Isn’t it possible that gatekeepers in the field demand numbers credentials with the intent–rather than just the incidental consequence–of excluding women? Sometimes the marginalization of women in a domain is a feature rather than a bug.
