Lawyers Club has been hard at work during this difficult time to support our members and the community. We continue to serve the needs of our members by providing valuable virtual programming for networking and connecting, joining amicus briefs for important cases, endorsing judicial candidates for appointment and election, and supporting our law students and diverse legal community. We need to continue to focus on advancing our mission because the issues affecting women have not ceased during the pandemic. Indeed, in some respects, the pandemic has exacerbated issues that women face. Now, more than ever, we need to support each other.
As many of you know, Lawyers Club counts on your membership dues to support our efforts to execute our mission. For those of you who can, RENEW YOUR MEMBERSHIP. Lawyers Club also recognizes that, during economic downturns, some members may wish to remain a member of our organization, but may be unable to renew their membership. Therefore, we have created the Lawyers Club Pay It Forward Program, which allows members to contribute to the cost of a membership for another member or law student. If you are able to assist, in addition to renewing your membership, please consider contributing to the cost of a membership for other devoted members.
With your support we will continue to advance our mission and ensure women in the future have the same vibrant and active organization that has supported you in the past.
