Board of Governors

The CWL Board of Governors works tirelessly to advocate for and advance issues that affect women in the legal profession often taking time away from their families, friends and busy careers.

To join the Board of Governors a CWL member may be elected by voting members of CWL from their respective District or appointed by members from CWL Affiliate Bar Associations. CWL's immediate past president also sits on the Board as do active CWL participants who are appointed by the President.

Below is a list of the members of the 2013-2014 CWL Board of Governors.
