Since 1919, WLAM, with more than 700 member attorneys, judges and law students, has worked to secure the rights of women in society by following the mission.

The WBA is where women lawyers in Oakland County and other regions in Southeast Michigan come together to build important personal and professional relationships.  Membership in the WBA and WLAM offers leadership opportunities, rewarding volunteer service and community projects, networking opportunities, and a sense of community with like-minded individuals.  Our ultimate goal is to make a difference in the legal profession and in society at large.

At the WBA, we are women with a vision. We are ambitious, proactive and focused. Join us today!
