The Association for Women Attorneys is a bar association of Memphis and Shelby County founded in 1979. Its members are dedicated to supporting each other as attorneys, educating themselves and others in the law, and being of service to the community with particular reference to the legal needs of women.

There are many reasons to have a bar association that caters specifically to women. In the AWA, women with experience act as role models and mentors to women with new careers and/or demanding young families. The AWA understands that women new to the legal profession need encouragement for professional and personal development. Also, the AWA provides invaluable networking and Continuing Legal Education opportunities for all its members. AWA members enjoy contributing to our community and business through outreach programs such as scholarships, new lawyer swearing-in ceremonies, and the Mentor Program. AWA is committed to the welfare of its members and the sustained presence of female leadership in the legal realm.
