Stars of the Bar is a free networking event that kicks off the WBA's programming year. The event brings together about 300 leaders in the DC legal community—women and men alike—who gather to network and learn more about the WBA.

Stars of the Bar offers a professional and friendly environment to network with other attorneys, including WBA members and WBA/WBA Foundation leadership. It also provides an excellent opportunity for finding out more about our programs and services, with networking stations for each of our committees and forums to discuss upcoming programming in various attorney interests and fields of law.

Our 2019 Stars of the Bar are women serving on the federal bench. We are pleased to announce this year's honorees from the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia:
Hon. Tanya S. Chutkan
Hon. Dabney L. Friedrich
Hon. Beryl A. Howell
Hon. Ellen S. Huvelle
Hon. Amy Berman Jackson
Hon. Ketanji Brown Jackson
Hon. Colleen Kollar-Kotelly
Hon. Robin M. Meriweather
Hon. Deborah A. Robinson

The evening's program will feature remarks by Chief Judge Howell on behalf of the honorees.

The 2019-2020 bar year theme is “Building Community, Building Power.” This theme recognizes that if we put our energies into making change collectively, with determination and creativity, we will achieve great things. Throughout the year, we will be thinking about the spaces where women lack representation and where working together, we can make great strides. We will be talking about women in a variety of leadership roles–in law firms, in boardrooms, in law schools, in nonprofits, in the judiciary, in legislatures, in government agencies, and in the DC community more broadly.
