Purpose

The Women's Law Caucus was organized to encourage more women to enter the legal profession, erase continued professional discrimination against women, provide mutual support for fellow students, and call attention to the needs and problems of women as attorneys.

The Women's Law Caucus is especially concerned with three areas:
1) recruitment and orientation - actively recruiting women to enter the legal profession;
2) curriculum and materials - -encouraging the administration to expand its course offerings to reflect the growing body of law;
3) placement - bringing to campus recruiters from firms and agencies that have demonstrated willingness to hire without discrimination.

The Women's Law Caucus is not just for women. Any student or faculty member may join.
