The National Association of Women Lawyers (NAWL)® is a national voluntary legal professional organization devoted to promoting the interests and progress of women lawyers and women’s legal rights. Founded in 1899, long before most local and national bar associations admitted women, NAWL has historically served as an educational forum and an active voice for the concerns of women in the legal profession.

    NAWL continues to support and advance the interests of women in and under the law. Today, members of NAWL represent all areas of legal expertise: public and private sectors; for-profit and not-for-profit; and large and small organizations. Through its programs and network, NAWL provides the tools for women in the profession to advance and prosper in their own careers while also enriching the profession.
