The Stars of the Bar Fall Networking Reception kicks off the WBA's program year. It is typically attended by more than 300 women and men, including firm, non-profit, government attorneys, judges, law students, and leaders in the DC legal community. 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.

This 2018-2019 bar year’s theme is “Dare to Make an Impact.”In announcing this theme, WBA president Yolanda Hawkins-Bautista noted at our annual dinner in May: “We do this by providing a voice on legislation that impacts women and girls, by becoming more involved with the community, and offering our legal expertise to organizations who support our cause.” It is our responsibility as legal professionals to commit ourselves to help our community, to advocate for equal pay and equal justice, and to continue advancing the interests of women lawyers.

This year, our “Stars” are grassroots organization leaders who are leading the way in the current fight against immigration policies and enforcement that separate families. We applaud their work in finding safe havens for children. The WBA looks forward to publicly saluting their achievements.
