Advisory Board

In the effort to capitalize on the breadth of experience and wisdom gained by our members over the years, Minnesota Women Lawyers created an Advisory Board in 2000. The Advisory Board membership is made up of women lawyers who reflect the diversity of our membership. The MWL President, Past-President and President-Elect also participate as members. The Advisory Board gathers twice a year, in an informal setting. They provide their feedback via written summary directly to the Board of Directors.

The role of the Advisory Board is:

1.) To review MWL's current programs and activities, particularly in light of the organization's mission, current trends in the legal profession and ongoing issues facing women attorneys;

2.) To make recommendations to the Board of Directors for improvements, changes, additions or deletions of programs and activities, keeping in mind MWL's current level of resources; and

3.) To explore means of ensuring MWL's long-term financial stability and to make recommendations for relevant policies to the Board of Directors.
