The National Bar Association Women Lawyers Division (WLD) was founded in 1972 as a sub-part of the National Bar Association. The WLD’s membership includes both women and men and represents every sector of the legal community, including private practitioners from firms of every size and specialty, professors, judges, law clerks, corporate counsel, prosecutors, government lawyers and law students. A champion for women issues, the Women Lawyers Division was established to address issues important to the community we serve and to women in particular.
The goals of the WLD include:
(1) to foster the exchange of information among our members;
(2) to encourage and facilitate networking amongst the members; and,
(3) to advance the interests and improve the status of women in the legal profession and the status of women in our society.
