The Fresno County Women Lawyers host a number of events throughout the year, focused on member education and advancement in the field, recognition of outstanding women lawyers, scholarships, and community service.
Monthly MCLE luncheons.
The last Wednesday of each month from January through October we offer a speaker luncheon on a variety of relevant topics, including elimination of bias, legal ethics, and competence (previously known as Prevention, Detection and Treatment of Substance Abuse or Mental Illness). Most luncheon speaker topics qualify for one MCLE credit.
In the spring of each year we host a Judicial Appreciation Night to recognize newly appointed female judges in the Central Valley. This is a well-attended event with sponsorship recognition opportunities.
Justice Pauline Hanson Awards Dinner & Banquet.
In the fall, we host the Justice Pauline Hanson Memorial Scholarship Dinner recognizing a nominated person who has made a significant contribution to the advancement of women in the legal field, and announcement of our annual scholarship recipient. This is a well-attended event with sponsorship recognition opportunities.
Several times during the year, FCWL gives back to our community through a variety of community service events. Some events have included Making Strides For Breast Cancer walk, cooking for families at the Ronald McDonald House, tying fleece blankets for donation to children in need, and many others.
Social Events and Mixers.
We are a lively group and like to have fun! From taco trucks to paint night to holiday gatherings, we enjoy getting to know other members of the bar and each other. We often join together in support of other bar events.
