WLA Membership Application

Dear Women Lawyers Association Member:

Above is a membership application and a list of dues prices for the 2014 membership year.  We are very pleased to announce reduced membership prices for government and non-profit attorneys.  We are excited about the upcoming year, and we hope you will continue your membership and support as well as encourage others to join.  The membership year runs from January through December.  Please pay your dues and return the enclosed completed information form by March 29th, 2014 so that your membership can continue uninterrupted.

Your annual membership dues allow the Association to continue its mission to provide a forum for women attorneys, promote the legal profession in Jefferson County, and offer information about the profession and public service to the community at large.

The updated amounts of dues are as follows:

Attorney Membership

  • $35 annual dues for attorneys with fewer than 4 years of practice;
  • $50 annual dues for attorneys with 4 years of practice or more;

Law Student Membership

  • $15 annual dues

Associate Membership (non-lawyers)

  • $50 annual dues

Non-profit and/or government attorney Membership

  • $17.50 annual dues for attorneys with fewer than 4 years of practice;
  • $25 annual dues for attorneys with 4 years of practice or more

Your paid membership provides you the opportunity to attend programs of interest sponsored by the WLA at monthly luncheons as well as preferential, reduced prices for CLE credits at certain WLA events.

We are hoping to increase membership and are offering the following incentives for current members who recruit new members:

  • WLA Members who recruit new WLA Members for the 2013 membership drive shall receive one free lunch at the Women Lawyers Association Monthly Meeting in May 2013 which is a CLE meeting.  Our updated membership application includes a space for referral information.
  • The first WLA Member to recruit 10 new WLA Members for the 2013 membership drive shall receive a $50.00 Louisville Originals gift card.

Please remember that men are encouraged to join the Women Lawyers Association, as it is not open only to women. 

Please complete the above application so that we will have your updated contact information for our records.  Please be sure to provide current information and include your area of practice so we can continue to update our Membership Directory.  Return the completed application and your check (made payable to Women Lawyers Association) to the address below:
