Pedernales Featured in Women in Law Special Report

Charlotte Business Journal
May 2013

Charlotte Public Affairs Attorney Leslie Pedernales was quoted in the Charlotte Business Journal’s special report "Women in Law" on May 3.  The article “A school and catalyst for change,” notes that Charlotte School of Law, Pedernales’ alma mater, is “bolstering the ranks” of female attorneys in Charlotte, amidst a national trend of majority male law school applicants. 

Pedernales, a former television programming executive and English instructor, made the decision to set out on a new career venture when Charlotte School of Law opened in 2006.  “With a home, a husband and three young children, Pedernales says it was unlikely she could have attended law school if doing so required a long commute.”
