The Chicago Chapter has membership plans for law firms, in-house counsel and individuals. 

Membership in the Coalition provides an invaluable opportunity for you and your law firm or company to connect with other female attorneys, their firms and networks, and to positively impact other women in a traditionally male-dominated field. The Coalition leads diversity and inclusion efforts and supports women's resource groups, and provides CLE programming on a variety of topics.
Member benefits include:

  • Members-only programs designed to appeal to women attorneys with all levels of experience, featuring speakers from both inside and outside the legal community, and offering training and perspectives on how to be successful in today's business environment.
  • The ability to exchange information, network and share the positive efforts and successes of more than 120 law firms and companies in Chicago, New York, and Washington, D.C.
  • Ideas and guidance for enhancing the recruitment, retention and promotion of women lawyers within your firm or others.
  • Opportunities to support the building, implementation and continued relevancy of women's initiatives in law firms.
  • Opportunities to help the Coalition support and guide efforts and practices that help develop women attorneys to their fullest potential.

  • 1 – 25 Attorneys: $750/year
  • 26 – 50 Attorneys: $1,200/year
  • 51 – 99 Attorneys: $2,200/year
