Building a Bright Future

We are the Women's Bar Association of Illinois

The Women’s Bar Association of Illinois was founded to promote the interests and welfare of women lawyers in 1914. For over 100 years, we’ve been doing exactly that to build a bright future for female attorneys in our state.

Throughout the year, we host social, educational, and philanthropic events for our members that keep our purpose in mind. Ranging from new attorneys to those who are established in their careers, we encourage friendship and camaraderie among our members while promoting and protecting the interests and rights of women.
