Message from Our 2016 WLA President - Nicole M. Norris

When we were founded in 1981, the legal profession in San Luis Obispo, statewide and throughout the United States presented a very different landscape for women.  Much of our extraordinary progress during the past 35 years is due to organizations like the WLA which are dedicated and steadfastly motivated to the advancement of women in our industry and the community at large...

As your 2016 President, my overall goal is to not only sustain this progress and these achievements, but build upon our collective motivation to create new programs and services that support your professional needs and our community.
