The Coalition of Women's Initiatives in Law
Welcome! The Coalition of Women's Initiatives in Law is a non-profit
membership association that brings together law firms, government entities, and
companies of all sizes. The Coalition was founded in Chicago in 2008 by a group
of women lawyers intent on joining forces with others to benefit the collective
whole. Today, in addition to the Chicago Chapter, the Coalition has Chapters
in New York and Washington, D.C. The Coalition continues to explore other Chapter locations. Currently, more than 120 law firms and companies are members
of the Coalition, stretching the reach of the Coalition to thousands of women
attorneys. The Coalition provides dozens of
programs each year, with the goal of fostering career advancement and professional
development, promoting dialogue, and providing a support-network among members to help
address the many issues facing women lawyers and women's initiatives today.

Literary Lawyers Series with Lauren Willig, NYT Bestselling Author

Please join New York Coalition board member Christina Bost Seaton and New York Times bestselling author Lauren Willig in a conversation about Lauren’s transition from being a practicing attorney to the author of more than twenty works of historical fiction, which have been translated into over a dozen languages. In honor of Women’s History Month, Lauren will also be discussing her most-recent book, Band of Sisters, which is a sweeping novel based on the remarkable true story of a group of alumna from Smith College who, as volunteers, go behind enemy lines in France during World War I in order to provide medical and other relief to civilians.
