The DWLA Foundation provides bar study scholarships to graduating law students who have demonstrated a commitment to scholastic achievement while furthering the DWLA mission to elevate the standing of women in the legal profession.  The committee also provides programming for Law School students.

Leadership Class

Preparing the next generation for success, DWLA selects 12 applicants each year for its Leadership Class and provides students with the tools to develop the professional skills necessary for success and leadership positions in law, business, government, the nonprofit sector, and the judiciary.


We continue to reach out to all men and women in the legal community to join us in support of our mission to elevate the standing of women in the legal profession. The committee organizes member events for networking opportunities.

Mentoring Circles

We are proud to partner with DAYL on Women’s Mentoring Circles. The program seeks to facilitate a connection between established female members of the Dallas Bar and their younger colleagues through mentorship.


DWLA believes in giving back. Our members, often partnering with other sister bar groups, come together and support causes to make a difference in the Dallas community.


Programming for DWLA comes in many forms – CLE’s, special event programs, and much more provide engaging topics to educate, inform, and enrich the lives of our members and the community.
