Since its founding, Northeastern University School of Law has championed diversity in the legal profession. Today, more than half of our graduates are women, practicing in every conceivable setting — from private practice to public service, from the bench to business — as well as a host of non-legal fields.

In 2005, the School of Law’s Office of Alumni/ae Relations and the Women in the Law Steering Committee decided it was high time to offer programming specifically geared toward alumnae. Together, we developed a platform of activities including an annual conference, brown bag lunches with topical programming, a series of articles on women in the law and networking activities for women lawyers.

Each year, we strive to address topics pertinent to women attorneys, regardless of their area of practice or career stage. Our goal is to offer practical, applicable and relevant information that women can put to use immediately in their careers. We also believe strongly in women supporting women, so we provide forums for networking, including ways to engage younger practitioners and current students.
