What is the CBA Alliance for Women?
Since its founding in 1992, the Alliance for Women has been working within The Chicago Bar Association to advance the interests of women in the legal profession and the larger community. Through monthly programs, special projects, networking events, and professional development the Alliance brings together the talents of its members to implement strategies that effect change.


The Alliance maintains a welcoming environment where everyone is encouraged to participate and to be actively involved. The Committee strives, through the work it undertakes and the activities it promotes and sponsors, to be an important resource for and relevant to every woman attorney in Chicago. Whether it is a political issue, health concern, social injustice or work-related interest, if it matters to you, it is important to the Alliance for Women.

The Chicago Bar Association Alliance for Women with the assistance of the Chicago Public Library created the Bar None exhibit in 1998 to share the story of Illinois' first generation of women lawyers on their 125th Anniversary. The exhibit will be on display at the CBA this Fall (stay tuned for details).
