Women in the Law Division

Promoting the success and advancement of women attorneys in Allegheny County

The Women in the Law Division meets on the last Wednesday of the month from 12:00 p.m.-1:00 p.m. in the City-County Building Academy Room.

This Division shall create and sponsor programs to educate the members of the bar and the judiciary as to the character and impact of overt and subtle barriers which deny women the opportunity to achieve full integration and equal participation in the work, responsibilities, and rewards of the legal profession. It shall work cooperatively with other organizations formed for the purpose of resolving problems created by such barriers within the legal system of Allegheny County, activate a committee to explore and make recommendations concerning the treatment of women as attorneys, judicial candidates, judges, jurors, witnesses, litigants, and employees throughout the legal system of Allegheny County, and respond quickly and appropriately to incidents of gender-based discrimination in the legal profession.
