A Message from the Division Chair
The Women and the Law Division of IndyBar is made up of a diverse group of attorneys and law students who seek both professional and personal fulfillment from the Division. The Division is open to all IndyBar members. The WLD plans a wide range of events that allow our members to build professional relationships, to volunteer with charitable organizations, to advance their careers, and to fulfill their continuing legal education needs. I encourage you to become involved with the Division by joining the Division, by attending WLD events, by joining the Executive Committee, or by joining one of our special planning committees that are open to all members of the Division. Please share any ideas you may have for events with any Executive Committee member as we welcome all input. We look forward to sharing new events with you this year and hope you can become active part of our membership.
