About the Board of Legal Advisors

The Board of Legal Advisors is a group of senior lawyers who serve as a key sounding board for Legal Momentum’s programs and activities. Members also are important ambassadors for Legal Momentum.

Legal Momentum occupies a unique position as a multi-issue organization dedicated solely to women’s rights. We are a national leader in developing and implementing litigation, advocacy, and public education strategies to open and expand opportunities for women, and to ensure that all women can build safe and economically secure lives for themselves and their families. 

Members of the Board of Legal Advisors are invited to special events throughout the year. The events will be held at different times of the day to accommodate our members' busy schedules. The events will vary in content some will be social, some will include distinguished guests, and others will provide briefings and active discussions about issues facing women in today’s society and the work of Legal Momentum. Each event will offer an opportunity to network with other professional women. In some cases, events are eligible for CLE credit.

As a member of the Board of Legal Advisors, you will receive acknowledgement of your membership and generosity in select Legal Momentum publications. In addition, you will be able to recommend senior women you know and admire for membership in the Board of Legal Advisors.

Perhaps the best reason to be part of the Board of Legal Advisors is the importance of the work we will do together. Legal Momentum's current work focuses on increasing women's pathways into quality employment; protecting the workplace rights of women; expanding the rights and services for victims of gender-based violence; and strengthening the safety net for vulnerable women and their children. As a member of the Board of Legal Advisors, you can help Legal Momentum meet these challenges and ensure that your voice is heard. 

Membership in the Board of Legal Advisors involves a total annual gift to Legal Momentum of $1,000. Many members have established higher giving levels of $2,500. We are grateful to all our BLA members’ generosity.
