The Center for Women in Law is a national resource and champion for women lawyers, generating lasting change within the legal profession.
The Center is devoted to the success of the entire spectrum of women in law, from first-year law students to the most experienced and accomplished lawyers. We serve as a national resource to convene leaders, generate ideas, and lead change.
Your gift will enable the Center for Women in Law to advance women today and into the future.

The Center for Women in Law has had a tremendous impact since its launch in 2009.

After more than a decade of success built on the commitment of its Founders and Power Circle Members, we developed a plan to guide the Center’s future. The Strategic Plan was developed from extensive input from the Center’s stakeholders and audience. It clarifies our Mission, Vision, and Core Values, and it articulates the key objectives that will guide our initiatives and programs. The Plan captures the ideals of those committed to the Center’s success. It invites all who share our Mission to join in our efforts.
