About The WLA


The WLA was formed in 1976 by a passionate group of women who were determined to form an organization that would support and promote women lawyers in all of their endeavors. Forty-three (43) years later, the WLA continues its mission to advance women in the legal profession, promote diversity, equality and justice within the legal system, and improve the status of women in the community.

Amongst many of its contributions, the WLA gives scholarships to exemplary law students, provides valuable networking opportunities to members, and endorses qualified candidates for judicial positions.


During the month of May, WLA will accept nominations for the election of Board Members to serve during the 2019-2020 year.  Nominations will be accepted for the positions of President-Elect, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, and Board Member(s) at Large.  Submit your nominations here

Elections will be held from June 17 - 30, 2019.  Check back here for electronic balloting.

Join us for the Annual Installation Dinner and Awards Gala on Friday, September 6, 2019 at the Sheldon Concert Hall, featuring Ann K. Covington, the first woman to serve as a Missouri Supreme Court Justice and Chief Justice.
