The Committee on Women in the Law (CWIL) invites you to browse this web page for information to help you manage your busy life, family and your daily practice of law. One of our primary goals is to assist women in the resolution of issues that constantly face women, including gender bias, pay equity, the struggle to build a career and reputation in the legal community, the challenge to find skilled child care and to juggle family issues. The quality of life issue has become increasingly important as the profession continues to grow with strong competent women who are continually performing a balancing act with life and work.
The CWIL remains committed to supporting women in the law and we welcome your input and participation on issues that are important to you and the legal profession. If you have any comments or suggestions, please contact the co-chairs of the CWIL, Sharon Porcellio, at email@example.com, and Anna Park, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
