Roberta Liebenberg served as chair of the 2011 Women’s Power Summit on Law and Leadership sponsored by the Center for Women in Law at the University of Texas Law School in Austin, Texas.

The Summit featured a number of nationally renowned speakers and panelists, including Patricia Sellers, editor-at-large, Fortune Magazine; Dr. Jeffrey Pfeffer, author of “Power: Why Some People Have It – And Others Don’t;” and Gloria Feldt, author of “No Excuses.”

With an audience of judges, law school deans, general counsel, and law firm managing partners, the Women’s Power Summit explored how women lawyers can attain and exercise power, and use that power for themselves and on behalf of other women, ultimately transforming the face of the legal profession.

Liebenberg is the chair of the _’s Commission on Women in the Profession and a partner at Fine Kaplan & Black in Philadelphia.
