Women Lawyers Committee

The USF Women Lawyers Committee was founded more than 20 years ago by a group of USF law school graduates who wanted to maintain the close ties they formed with other women during law school, provide guidance and support for current law students, through activities such as a Mentor Program and speaker panels, and award a Scholarship for Transitional Students to help them make the transition from another career to law school.
