MWL Signature Events

Minnesota Women Lawyers hosts several signature networking events throughout the year featuring high profile keynote presentations. All MWL members, the legal community and guests are invited to join us.  Scholarship funds may be available for specific events and programs. For more information, please contact Executive Director Debra Pexa.

The MWL Rosalie Wahl Leadership Lecture

The MWL Rosalie Wahl Leadership Lecture was first established in 1994 by Minnesota Women Lawyers to honor the career of Justice Rosalie Wahl, the first woman justice to serve on the Minnesota Supreme Court, on the occasion of her retirement from the bench. The goal of the Wahl Leadership Lecture series is to feature women whose decisions and abilities inspire the leaders of tomorrow just as Justice Wahl has inspired so many of us.


Minnesota Women Lawyers (MWL) is pleased to announce its 26th Annual Rosalie Wahl Leadership Lecture to be held remotely on Tuesday, October 27, 2020.

CANCELLED - MWL's 2020 Conference for Women in the Law

March 18, 2020:
Minnesota Women Lawyers’ leadership has been closely monitoring the evolving COVID-19 circumstances over these last weeks and has made the decision to cancel the 2020 MWL Conference for Women in the Law scheduled for April 24th, 2020
. Based on the latest guidance from public health officials, it became clear to us that cancellation was the right course of action.  This difficult decision was made out of deep concern for the health and well-being of our attendees, staff, stakeholders, and our communities. View the complete announcement HERE.


Minnesota Women Lawyers was pleased to present The 2020 MWL Conference for Women in the Law on Friday, April 24th, 2020 at the Marriott City Center in downtown Minneapolis.

The goals of the MWL Conference are to collaborate across MWL’s statewide legal community, to provide high-value programming of interest to our diverse membership, and to create meaningful networking opportunities. The MWL Conference also features a full day of programming, geared towards the diverse practice areas and experience levels represented by MWL's membership. All members of Minnesota’s legal community are welcome to attend.  

MWL's (virtual) 48th Annual Meeting


April 24, 2020


Dear MWL Members and Friends,


Since the MWL membership isn’t able to gather for our 48th Annual Meeting today, we are bringing the event to you!  There is so much to celebrate, even if we can’t be together!

On behalf of Minnesota Women Lawyers, I invite you to participate in MWL’s (virtual) 48th Annual Meeting. 



Also, as you’ve probably learned first-hand, MWL is currently engaged in a “MWL Community Call-a-Thon.”  MWL’s leaders are personally calling EVERY SINGLE ONE of MWL’s nearly 1,200 members.  Why?  Because MWL’s membership is the foundation of the organization and we’re taking this opportunity to connect, particularly since we can’t do it in person this year.


MWL leaders have already had hundreds of conversations (and left quite a few voicemails, too!)  In short, we are overwhelmed by the response. We are hearing great ideas and suggestions for MWL, and we’re hearing your gratitude.  Quite frankly, that gratitude is exactly what we here at MWL are feeling too! 


(Please know, if you haven’t heard from us yet, we’ll be in touch soon!)


As always, thank you for being a part of the MWL community.  We look forward to what’s next!


My best,
Debra Pexa
MWL Executive Director
