The Women Lawyers' Section was established in 1986, first named the "Women in Law Committee." Its stated mission is "to support women in the legal profession and to promote the legal interests of women in society." The Section's goals and priorities include: increased membership, active involvement of all members, education to the legal community and the public, philanthropy (time/money), advocating judicial appointment of individuals who are supportive of women, advancing legislation furthering women's interests, and, last but not least, networking and social functions.
The Women Lawyers' Section has established the Section's Educational Foundation, a non-profit fundraising organization, which establishes scholarships for needy law students who have ties to San Mateo County. The Foundation's annual fundraiser is held in September or October each year. All proceeds benefit the Educational Foundation.
The Section generally meets the 1st Thursday of every other month. Especially popular are the Spring Judges' Luncheon and the December Holiday Luncheon, which features a raffle and door prizes. Check the Here-Say for upcoming meetings.
