Women Trial Lawyers Caucus


NJAJ Women Trial Lawyers Caucus

The NJAJ Women Trial Lawyers Caucus is composed of female lawyers who are Regular Members in good standing of NJAJ.  The Caucus is responsible for developing education and networking programs as well as other activities of special interest to female members of NJAJ.  The Caucus helps to develop programs to increase female membership in NJAJ and participation in leadership roles for the Association. 

As stated in the By-laws, the Caucus seeks to advance the admirable and selfless philosophy in NJAJ's Mission, to provide positive role models as women trial lawyers, to broaden the membership base of NJAJ to include women by informing them of NJAJ's membership services and Mission, to provide a support system of women lawyers to network, socialize, form professional relationships and develop female leadership for NJAJ, to provide fellowship and mentorship to newly-licensed female lawyers who embark on a career of trial law, and to uphold the honor and dignity of the legal profession

The Caucus sponsors and presents educational seminars and other programs during the calendar year.  Participation at all levels is welcomed.  Presently, the Caucus is periodically hosting networking events, a trial skills seminar in the Spring and the annual Women Litigator's Luncheon at the NJAJ Boardwalk Seminar® and the Meadowlands Seminar. The Caucus intends to work with NJAJ's Director of Governmental Affairs, Deborah R. Bozarth, to sponsor Women's Lobby Days in Trenton to respond to and address those legislative issues which disproportionately affect women, families and children.
