WELCOME TO WLD

The National Bar Association, Women Lawyers Division, Philadelphia Chapter (WLD) was formed to address the challenges to advancement in the legal profession faced by women of color in the Philadelphia area, including minimized opportunities to form networks and find mentors with similar interests and backgrounds. While strides have been made since 1927 when Sadie T. M. Alexander became the first black woman to become a member of the Pennsylvania Bar, the organization continues to be relevant as women of color still find themselves facing unique obstacles to career advancement in the legal profession. The WLD continues its efforts in advancing diversity in the city's law schools, law firms and corporations through its scholarship programs, continuing legal education seminars, community service projects and networking opportunities.

2017 Scholarship Applications are available.
