The UT Women's Law Caucus works with and supports the following organizations:
THE CENTER FOR WOMEN IN LAW
The Center for Women in Law at UT Law is the premier educational institution devoted to the success of the entire spectrum of women in law, from first-year law students to the most experienced and accomplished attorneys. It combines theory with practice, identifying and addressing the persistent issues facing individual women and the profession as a whole. The Center serves as a national resource to convene leaders, generate ideas, and inspire change.
Ms. JD seeks to support and improve the experiences of women law students and lawyers. Ms. JD strives to give voice to why it matters that women continue to overcome barriers to achieve gender parity in the profession. In doing so, Ms. JD spreads the word: women’s victories are everyone’s victories.
Ms. JD has campus chapters at law schools across the country. Together, these chapters form the National Women Law Students' Organization (NWLSO). Under the umbrella of Ms. JD, NWLSO is a national organization that represents the interests of women law students, provides a forum for women at law schools across the country to connect with one another and experienced practitioners, and links law school women’s organizations nationwide.
THE ABUSE SURVIVORS ASSISTANCE PROGRAM
The Abuse Survivor Assistance Program (ASAP) is a student-run organization at UT Law, which is committed to providing short-term emergency financial assistance to survivors who are leaving abusive relationships. Financial insecurity is one of the strongest deterrents to leaving abusive situations, while financial independence is the number one predictor of whether a survivor of domestic violence will get free and stay free from abuse. By providing financial assistance, ASAP empowers survivors to help themselves.
