Women’s Caucus
 
According to the National Association of Women Lawyers, even though women made up about 30 percent of practicing attorneys, in 2012 they accounted only about 15 percent of law firm equity partners and only 26 percent of non-equity partners. This gap is likely due to the fact that women are less likely to have networking and mentoring systems to help form them as potential leaders.

To address this need, the LAJ Women's Caucus is developing
 
  • a series of dynamic networking luncheons,
  • a mentoring program,
  • educational events and
  • community service activities.

The networking luncheons were created by the Women's Caucus "Women in the Profession" committee, formed in 2014 and focused on bringing together women plaintiff attorneys and area judges for socialization and discussion of topics affecting the profession.   

All female members are automatically members of its Women's Caucus and eligible to participate in its list server.
