The Women’s Law Caucus (WLC) sponsors and provides events, activities, and information about issues affecting women in the legal profession. In addition, WLC hosts several social events throughout the year, allowing students to get to know each other, community professionals, and law school faculty. Though the WLC provides information about women, membership and participation are open to all students, faculty and staff, and community members.

To get involved, a student can attend general meetings, attend and/or participate in the sponsored events, sign up on TWEN, and volunteer for one of our many committees. During Spring Semester, students have the opportunity to run for a board position to become even more involved with the organization.

Past Activities:

  • The WLC operates a year-round book exchange, offering students an alternative for buying textbooks, study guides, and supplemental materials. Because this is a donation based, the quality of the books varies. If your professor does not require a brand new edition, you could save a ton of money. Hours and more details are below.
  • Women in Law panels during the lunch hour or in the evenings on a variety of topics such as salary negotiations, how to have your voice heard in the workplace, difficulties surrounding being a woman in law, and more.
  • Mentor/Mentee Program: WLC pairs incoming students second and third year students who serve as mentors. There is a kickoff event at the beginning of Fall Semester as well as additional events later in the year.
  • Women in Law Day (WILD): WLC sponsors a visit and informational conference for women interested in the legal profession; activities include panel discussions, prominent guest speakers, and a mock law school class
  • Summer Fellowship: WLC annually awards a fellowship to a 1L or 2L who will be volunteering in some capacity regarding women’s issues.
  • Various social events such as cookie decorating, movie nights, picnics, and yoga.
