The National

Engage. Encourage. Empower.

About the Event

It is with great pride that the Black Women Lawyers’ Association of Greater Chicago, Inc. (“BWLA”) invites you to soar with us during our  National Summit of Black Women Lawyers to take place March 30 – April 1, 2023, in Chicago, Illinois. We look forward to seeing you soon, and we hope you leave BWLA’s 2023 National Summit feeling encouraged and empowered.

Together, We Soar

The theme of the 2023 National Summit is Together, We Soar, emphasizing that our power and potential are limitless when we work to uplift each other. Our conference will feature a wide range of programs across topics, including leadership in uncertain times, views from the bench, developments in constitutional law, strategies for wellness, and community engagement. The Summit will culminate in an exquisite black-tie gala to celebrate our power, influence, and boldness within the legal community.  

Since 1987, BWLA has worked to: identify and address issues unique to Black women lawyers, judges, and those in academia; improve the administration of justice; and advance civil and human rights. In addition, since our founding, BWLA has also awarded over $1 million in scholarships to Black law students across the country.

Although our efforts are generally focused on the Chicago metropolitan region, every five years, it has been our tradition to host a national summit inviting Black women judges, attorneys, law students, and allies from across the country for an opportunity to engage, encourage, and empower one another and the next generation of Black women lawyers.

We hope you join us on this journey as we soar.

The event is being hosted by The Black Women Lawyers of Greater Chicago, Inc.
