Retired NJ Supreme Court Justice Virginia Long To Deliver Keynote Speech at Princeton Chambers 2013 Women’s Conference

September 18, 2013 – Press Releases

Virginia Long, former New Jersey Supreme Court Justice and currently counsel in the Princeton office of Fox Rothschild LLP, has been selected to deliver the keynote speech at second annual Women’s Conference, hosted by the Princeton Regional Chamber of Commerce on October 17, 2013. The conference will focus on topics related to “Leadership Redefined,” and more than 300 professional women are expected to attend this conference.

The conference will cover a variety of topics including:

  • Why Real Leaders Understand That Developing the Potential of Others Is the Ultimate Measure of Success
  • Do I Know You? Building Your LinkedIn Network
  • Do You Have What It Takes To Be a Successful Leader?
  • Balancing Work, Life and Wellness for the Woman Who Has No Time

Targeted to accomplished professional women, the event will provide a forum for women to discuss their definitions of success and how they realize and accomplish goals.

Justice Long served as a trial and appellate court judge for 23 years and as a New Jersey Supreme Court Justice for 12. Before retiring at the mandatory age of 70 in March 2013, she authored opinions on many important issues and is noted for her view on the death penalty, which she believes is impossible to apply rationally and consistently. She has been credited, with others, with informing the decision of the New Jersey Legislature to abolish the death penalty entirely in 2007, substituting life imprisonment without the possibility of parole as the applicable punishment.

Justice Long now serves as counsel at Fox Rothschild, where she devotes her efforts to assisting clients with ethics and appellate matters, corporate governance and governmental integrity investigations and to serving as a mediator in alternative dispute resolution matters. She also spearheads the firm’s pro bono efforts in New Jersey.

The event will be held at the Princeton Marriott Hotel & Conference Center. For more information, or to register, please visit: http://web.princetonchamber.org/External/WCPages/WCEvents/EventDetail.aspx?EventID=147
