Connecting Lawyers To Justice

Learn more about who we are and what we do

Our Organization

Women Lawyers On Guard is a national non-partisan organization harnessing the power of lawyers and the law in coordination with other organizations to preserve, protect, and defend the democratic values of equality, justice, and opportunity for all.

Who We Are

A network of lawyers and other professionals committed to preserving, protecting, and defending democratic values. Not “just” equality and justice, but also opportunity for all.

WLG was founded to help lawyers and other professionals who wish to use their skills to assist other non-profit organizations fulfill their similar missions.

Our members include many lawyers and other professionals who have become active for the first time in their careers, because they cannot sit back and watch our country lose its moral and democratic compass.
