Weighing in on Women and Work
Women lawyers should have a clear idea about the skills, relationships, and experiences they want to take away from each new opportunity in their career, says Esta Eiger Stecher '82, who was honored by the Columbia Law Women's Association
New York, May 1, 2013—The Columbia Law Women’s Association honored Esta Eiger Stecher ’82 with their Distinguished Alumna Award at the 33rd annual Myra Bradwell Dinner on April 9. In her remarks, Stecher articulated lessons about taking risks, new career opportunities, and the importance of mentors for the law students and recent graduates in attendance at the event held at University House.

David M. Schizer, Dean and the Lucy G. Moses Professor of Law and Harvey R. Miller Professor of Law and Economics, introduced Stecher and cited wisdom as her defining trait. Schizer first heard about Stecher when he was a tax lawyer at a firm that competed with Stecher’s practice at S&C. “She was simply legendary,” he said, “even in the very beginning of her career.”
