Who Can Join FAWL?
Membership is available to any attorney, male or female, in good standing with The Florida Bar, or any other state's bar, as well as law students and affiliate members. State dues are $45 for attorneys and $10 for law students. Dues for local chapters are determined locally and vary from chapter to chapter.
The role of State FAWL and its Board of Directors to local chapters: The FAWL Board of Directors is composed of the State officers and a chapter representative from each local chapter. Each officer and chapter representative, with the exception of student chapter representatives, has one vote on the State Board of Directors. The local chapters designate their chapter representatives and may select alternates to ensure representation. Each local chapter is an independent voluntary bar association, but its members, by enrolling in the local chapter, also become members of FAWL.
Members in leadership positions within local chapters are encouraged to become active at the State level. If you have an interest in serving on the FAWL Board of Directors, please advise the Nominating Chair.
State FAWL has held a non-voting liaison seat on The Florida Bar's Board of Governors since 1984 and is a member of the National Women's Bar Association, National Conference of Women's Bar Associations and the National Association of Women Lawyers.
