Welcome to the online home of the Association for Women Lawyers! Whether you're new to our organization or a current or returning member, we hope you will find encouragement, education, support, and friendship through our programs and events.  

AWL is a southeastern Wisconsin-based organization with members of all ages and all types of legal professionals. Our members are solo practitioners, defense and plaintiff's attorneys, government attorneys, and in house counsel. They are also professors, educators, not-for-profit directors, and contractors.  

AWL offers a variety of opportunities for professional development, community involvement, and personal support. Whether you choose to attend one of our many CLE programs, a discussion group luncheon, or develop your referral base by connecting with other members, you'll find that AWL provides quality programming on current legal issues with respected and exciting speakers. Helpful practice tips are also available in our monthly newsletter. 

Community involvement opportunities are available through the Community Outreach Committee, which supports Habitat for Humanity, among its other projects.

As a women's bar association, we understand the importance of networking, for personal and professional reasons. Our networking and social events are the perfect opportunity to make those important connections and build relationships. We have something to interest everyone, from a spa night to an evening at a painting bar, and our newest group, unWINEd, where members can gather, chat, and relax.    

Our premiere event, Women Judges' Night, celebrates the achievements of women in the judiciary and is generally held in March or early April. We announce the date and speaker in late fall. As part of our mission to promote women in the law, we are also proud that the proceeds from Women Judges' Night fund scholarships awarded by the AWL Foundation to female law students at Marquette University Law School and the University of Wisconsin Law School.  


AWL has something to offer to everyone at every stage of their career. Please explore our website to learn more about our organization and all of the fantastic events and opportunities we have to offer. I invite you to attend one of our events and see for yourself what an amazing group we are. Check back for news on upcoming events throughout the year. I look forward to meeting you and introducing you to our organization and its fabulous members.
