About LWC

The Law Women's Caucus addresses the interests and concerns of the women of the Law School and beyond. LWC provides a forum for debate and discussion of issues pertaining to women and gender broadly defined; devotes resources to student support and professional development; advocates in service of women's interests in society; and cultivates relationships amongst the women of the University. We also sponsor the Big Sibling Program at the Law School, which matches interested first year students with a second or third year who can offer advice and support.

Please check back soon for upcoming events for Fall 2016!
