The Legal Association of Women (LAW) is the University of Massachusetts School of Law’s first organization formed to focus on women in the legal profession. ‌

The purpose of LAW is to foster equality within the UMass Law community as well as the community at large through political activism, education, and the sponsorship of events that serve to promote diversity and gender equality.

We continue to bring speakers to the law school to discuss timely issues concerning women in the law and also participate in community events like the annual Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk each fall.

We encourage all students and alumni, including both female and male students from the day and evening programs and all alumni of SNESL/UMass Law to attend our meetings and to join our organization.
