Women's Law Home
The purpose of the Women’s Law Caucus is to bring together the community of Lewis and Clark students interested in exploring the wide spectrum of legal issues affecting women. The WLC also promotes women in the law by providing support and encouragement to students, enhancing ties with the community, and empowering future female leaders who will work toward the advancement of women’s legal rights.
