The Women's Law Caucus at the University of Texas School of Law seeks to propel women into successful roles as both students at the Law School and future lawyers. We value professionalism, community service, and compassion and support in and outside of the Law School.
Our mission is to create an environment of support for women in the legal field both inside and outside the Law School. Events which support our mission include the mentorship program, member social events, networking opportunities, and community service. The Caucus is both an opportunity to form lasting friendships in law school and to develop mentorship relationships that propel members through the legal profession. Additionally, as a Ms. JD campus chapter, the Caucus is linked with organizations nationwide that provide an opportunity for members to connect with other law students and experienced practitioners from around the country.
The Women's Law Caucus reflects both the success and the influence of women at the Law School. Founded in 1972, the Caucus is one of the largest student organizations. Activities range from professional development and academic support to social events and networking opportunities.
