Sponsorship Opportunities

How to Become a Sponsor

For almost fifty years, the National Bar Association Women Lawyers Division (NBA WLD) has been a voice for women in the legal profession. The NBA WLD has been a leader in women’s suffrage, legal rights, and equality, and continues to pave the way as new issues important to women in the profession arise. 

As a nonprofit 501(c)(7) under the National Bar Association, the WLD is committed to supporting our members in advancing their careers through unique professional development opportunities, including in-person conferences, webinars, retreats with a focus on network expansion to open doors to expand professional contacts, collaboration, and opportunities. The WLD is also committed to developing the next generation of legal professionals through its mentoring program for women law students attending law schools at the six Historically Black Colleges and Universities and through its annual Respect Yourself Program for middle school and high school girls.
