The WLAO President’s Award honours a woman, firm or organization who has made a substantial contribution to the legal community and as a recognized leader, demonstrates a commitment to the promotion of women in the law: engaged, aware and connected to issues, substantive and personal, facing women in the legal profession today.

The three Student Awards recognize women currently attending law school who have demonstrated great leadership and whose drive will no doubt have a positive impact on the legal community.

The WLAO General Counsel Chapter Award, established in 2015, recognizes a member of the General Counsel Chapter for her leadership role and commitment to the success of women in law.

We hope you will celebrate these inspiring women and their achievements with us on August 6, 2020 at 7pm. Please join us in acknowledging their dedication and hard work.
