About Our Section

The purpose of the Women in the Law Section is: 1) to monitor the progress and enhance the status and opportunities available to women in the legal profession; 2) to provide women attorneys in Connecticut with an opportunity to share concerns, communicate, and network with one another in a supportive forum; and 3) to promote the participation of the Connecticut Bar Association in substantive areas of law and legislation that present issues of particular concern to women in the profession, and to those who seek legal services.
