Message from the President:

Welcome to the Broward County Women Lawyers’ Association (“BCWLA”), the Broward Chapter of the Florida Association for Women Lawyers (“FAWL”). BCWLA represents a diverse and dynamic group of attorneys. The organization strives to maintain the honor and dignity of the legal profession; to educate members and the public in matters pertaining to the law and the legal profession; to cultivate professional ethics and social discourse among the membership; to actively promote gender equality and leadership roles for members in the legal profession, judiciary and community; and to facilitate the administration of justice. The organization has a proud thirty-year history of promoting these interests.

Each year, we continue to grow and expand our commitment to the legal profession through monthly meetings and community events. BCWLA hosts continuing legal education seminars on a variety of topics facing the legal profession and this year we have committed to focusing on the mental health and wellness of attorneys.

Membership includes the opportunity to attend free or discounted members-only social and networking events throughout the year. The organization encourages and assists its members to attain leadership roles in the profession, at the local, state and national level. Our members practice all types of law and come from law firms and organizations all of sizes around the county. BCWLA Members are also FAWL Members and have access to FAWL benefits and the FAWL Membership Directory, a means to develop a strong network around the State.

BCWLA is honored and privileged to have the assistance of our generous sponsors to help the organization accomplish its objectives. Our sponsors represent distinguished legal and business organizations that provide financial and professional support to our members.

If you are interested in learning more about BCWLA, please contact us or join us at one of our upcoming events. We welcome new members and look forward to meeting you this year!
