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).

website, sponsored by the CBA, for a glimpse of the exhibit,
capturing the essence of the lives and work of Illinois' first
generation of women lawyers.
