Pitt Law Women's Association

The Pitt Law Women's Association (PLWA) was founded to give female law students a community within a male-dominated field. As women's equality in the law has grown, PLWA has changed as well into an organization dedicated to celebrating the accomplishments of women in the law and helping to provide career guidance and support to anyone who is dedicated to furthering gender equity in the profession.
