WLMP Founder’s Award – The WLMP Founder’s Award recognizes excellence in advancing equity issues and the retention of women in the law. It is bestowed only every 2 years by the WLMP National Board.
Friend of the WLMP Award – The Friend of the WLMP Award recognizes either a WLMP legal mentor, an ally organization or a WLMP supporter for their dedication to women’s legal mentorship and work in increasing the retention of women in the law by shifting our legal culture.
