The Women’s Legal Society is a student-run organization having its principal place of business at the University of La Verne College of Law. The Women’s Legal Society’s primary goal is to address and meet the personal, professional, and academic needs of female law students as well as all law students at the University of La Verne College of Law regardless of gender identity. We focus on issues that are often considered women’s issues, but are issues for all students regardless of sex or gender. Through mentorship programs, speaker events, volunteer opportunities and other activities, we attempt to serve the needs of law students in every aspect of their lives. We will use our resources to educate all students on the legal status of women in society and explore the possibilities for change. To accomplish these goals, the Women’s Legal Society conducts a variety of activities, organizing some of the activities on its own while co-sponsoring or working with other student organizations and the University of La Verne College of Law faculty for others. The Women’s Legal Society’s activities aim to address a diverse spectrum of interests.
The organization promotes awareness campaigns for women’s issues, philanthropic endeavors, fundraisers for women’s programs, social outings hosted to encourage networking, and various University of La Verne College of Law educational programs and panels. The Women’s Legal Society aims to provide its members with a multitude of ways to involve themselves in the University of La Verne College of Law community and to enrich their education outside of the classroom. To encourage involvement, the Women’s Legal Society has established social media forums for its members. The Women’s Legal Society will maintain a TWEN page to distribute information to its members and a way to vote during the Women’s Legal Society elections. The Women’s Legal Society also has a Facebook page to keep members current on events.
