The Women's Bar Association of Illinois was founded in 1914 by nine Chicago women lawyers.  Its charter was issued on June 23, 1914 with the stated purpose "to promulgate, promote, advance and protect the interests of women lawyers in the State of Illinois..."  The formation of the WBAI followed closely on the heels of the 1913 Illinois law that gave women the right to vote in presidential and municipal elections.  2014-2015 marks the WBAI's 100th anniversary!

Thank you to the Co-Chairs of the Successful Top Women Lawyers in Leadership Reception!
