Message from the President
Welcome to the Western Region! The purpose of WLAM Western Region is to secure the rights of women in society and advance the interests of women members of the legal profession, to promote improvements in the administration of justice, to promote equality and social justice for all people, to improve relations between the legal profession and the public, and to encourage the continued legal education of lawyers.
The Western Region pursues this purpose by creating an environment where women attorneys support each other and help our community. We host monthly social events in the greater Grand Rapids area that are fun opportunities to network with other women in the legal profession and develop new friendships. We strive to give back to our community by volunteering and fundraising for different local philanthropic organizations. One of our biggest community events is our annual “Women Lawyers vs. Judges” softball game at the Whitecaps Stadium. All proceeds of this event go to the YWCA of West Central Michigan. We also support family involvement by hosting a “Take Your Child to Work Day” and welcoming children and significant others at many of our events. All in all, we are a welcoming group of women attorneys who would love to get to know you!
