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.
