Idaho Women Lawyers was formed in 1986 by a group of women who saw an opportunity to create an organization that would allow women to work toward a collective purpose of improving the legal profession for women lawyers.

Today, IWL has more than 200 members throughout the state of Idaho and is a dynamic group supporting a variety of projects and activities consistent with our mission to advance diversity through the promotion of equal rights and opportunities for women in the legal profession.
