Women in the Law Division Scholarship
The ACBA Bench-Bar Conference offers an excellent opportunity to network with other ACBA attorneys and to allow speakers to showcase their skills. In some cases, that opportunity is limited by the costs of attendance, resulting in low attendance from both new attorneys and attorneys working in public service. The WLD is dedicated to promoting diversity and inclusion in our CLE programs and attendance at Bench-Bar.
In order to support attorneys who would not otherwise have the opportunity to participate in the WLD program and/or otherwise attend Bench-Bar, the WLD Council has created a scholarship program to Bench-Bar for attorney speakers of the WLD Bench-Bar program and/or other new attorneys or public service attorneys whose employers cannot or will not reimburse them for their attendance at Bench-Bar. Please contact Leslie Dutchcot at firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, May 15 if you would like to apply for the scholarship and explain how you meet the criteria.
