Amanda Gordon Schreiber has been elected to serve as the CBA-YLS Chair-elect.

She has experience litigating matters in state and federal courts, as well as arbitration proceedings across the country. Ms. Gordon Schreiber will eventually, pending annual election results, be elevated to lead the CBA-YLS as Chair in 2019.
Alisha N. Sullivan, a member of Robinson+Cole’s Employee Benefits and Compensation Group, has been named the chair of the CBA-YLS Tax Committee. In addition, Ms. Sullivan was presented with a CBA-YLS Star of the Year Award in recognition of her previous role as co-chair of the section’s Women in the Law Committee. The committee plays a key role in planning the annual Pathways to Leadership for Women Lawyers dinner. Hosted in partnership with the CBA Women in the Law Section, the signature event includes the presentation of the Ladder Award that recognizes a female attorney in Connecticut who has demonstrated exceptional leadership affecting women.
