Directory of Associations for Women Lawyers

The ABA Commission on Women in the Profession is pleased to offer the Directory of Associations for Women Lawyers online. The directory contains listings of national, state, local, international, and multicultural organizations for women attorneys. The directory also includes information on gender bias task forces and committees, where available.

For each organization listed, we have provided the most current URL of the group's web site that we could locate. If no web site link appears, then the web does not exist, insofar as we could determine.

If you have updated information for your association - or if your organization is not listed - please contact Jennifer Sawicz at jennifer.sawicz@americanbar.org
