Law Association for Women (LAW)
President: Miriam Carroll [email]
The Law Association for Women promotes greater awareness of issues affecting women, and in particular women attorneys. LAW strives to provide support for women law students by sponsoring activities and establishing contacts with women lawyers. The “Women in the Round” program provides a forum for law students and attorneys to discuss the legal profession from a female perspective and discuss common concerns. LAW also sponsors “Belva Lockwood Week,” an annual event honoring the first woman to run for president and argue before the Supreme Court. Belva Lockwood Week events have included brown bag lunches, speakers, and films about women and the law. All students with an interest in issues facing women and women lawyers are encouraged to join LAW.
