About

The 4th Annual Women in Trial Travel Summit® (WITTS) will be held at the beautiful Conrad resort in Punta Mita, Mexico. WITTS is hosted by Lauren Wood, principal trial attorney with L Wood Law Corp and the owner of Travel is the Cure, a travel blog and company that hosts group trips and MCLE events. This attorney conference mixes legal education with exciting travel destinations. WITTS is an event where attendees bond with like-minded women, experience the culture in a new locale, network with vendors and other trial lawyers, and enjoy some much needed fun in the sun, away from the office. There will be MCLE* classes in the mornings, with optional excursions in the afternoons.

 

The first, second and third WITTS events were also held in April at the Conrad in Punta de Mita. There were four to five hosted events, including a welcome cocktail reception, lunch with keynote speaker, poolside cocktail hour with live mariachi music, dinner with a live Cuban band and beachside farewell brunch and champagne toast.
