WLA Past Presidents

The Women Lawyers’ Association of Greater St. Louis has been in existence since 1976, when a brave group of women decided to band together to form an organization that would support and promote women lawyers in all of their endeavors. Our members are judges, business leaders, politicians, lawyers from big firms, lawyers from small firms and everyone in between.
