The mission of the Woman Law Students Association is to help women thrive in our law school and to ease the transition between the academic and the work environments. WLSA strives to create a community that will raise awareness of women’s issues and move toward the betterment of women in the legal profession. We also seek to provide a forum for students to enhance their law school experience.
WLSA prides itself on its ability to fulfill this mission through its yearly calendar of events. Some of this year’s highlights include the continuation of our successful Spring Speaker’s Series, Coffee and Conversation programming featuring successful women law professors that have worked in a variety of legal fields, and our professional development programming, such as the WLSA-Baker Botts Resume Review and Mock Interview Program in the fall. We hope to see you at all our upcoming events!
