This year, NCAWA is partnering with Legal Aid of NC, in its mission to provide access to justice to those who can not afford legal services: Click HERE to learn more.

CWB thanks its generous past sponsors and welcomes new sponsorship.
Our mission is to advance and encourage women's participation in the legal profession by offering programs designed to meet the unique professional and personal needs of women attorneys.

When you join the NCAWA and CWB, you can expect a networking forum for business development, access to professional programs, mentoring and leadership opportunities, rewarding work on our committees, and more.  Our vision is to build a strong community of women lawyers who make a difference in the profession and in society at large.  Our goals are to increase the effective participation by women in the justice system, in public office, and within the legal profession; to promote the rights of women under the law; and to promote the welfare of the women attorneys of North Carolina. The benefits of CWB membership include:

An Instant Network:  Membership opens doors.  Through your involvement, you have the opportunity to network with hundreds of members, both women and men, from the judiciary, law firms, corporations, non-profits, and the government.  Members support each other by providing business referrals, developing mentoring relationships, serving as role models, and creating opportunities for one another.

Recognition and Visibility: We all know it’s awkward to toot your own horn.  Let the NCAWA and CWB promote your accomplishments and achievements in our newsletters and e-blasts, and on our website.  In addition, NCAWA maintains an online member directory, which puts the entire NCAWA membership at your fingertips, making networking easier than ever.  On a local level, CWB endeavors to nominate its members for various professional accolades.  In the past, such accolades include, among others, Charlotte’s 50 Most Influential Women and Charlotte Business Journal’s Forty under 40, and guides its members through the associated applications.

First-Class Events:  Each year, the NCAWA hosts an annual conference that provides members an opportunity to meet and hear from prominent individuals in the profession.  In addition, CWB hosts a wide variety of programs and socials.

Leadership Development.  Members have the opportunity to join one or more NCAWA and CWB committees to gain invaluable experience and to establish a great foundation for further leadership positions.

Publications: All NCAWA members receive a subscription to Self-Evident, the NCAWA's member newsletter, which covers issues of concern to women in the law, profiles women leaders, and substantive articles written by members, and full access to the NCAWA website, including the CWB page.
