Texas Women Lawyers was created to coordinate, facilitate and promote women’s issues in the law and in the profession. The existence of a number of women’s bar associations and organizations throughout the state necessitated the creation of an umbrella group to share ideas and resources and speak effectively with a common voice on women’s issues in the legal profession.
Over the years, TWL has hosted an Annual Meeting and CLE focusing on issues facing women in the profession, networking, and business development. Some of its most notable keynote speakers have included Susan Estrich, Gloria Allred, and more. At the event, TWL presents its Pathfinder Award to an individual who has been a champion promoting the advancement of women in the law and who exemplifies professionalism, leadership, and commitment to the public interest.
