According to the Bylaws, the CWBA Historian researches and maintains the history of the CWBA as an organization, and maintains individual histories of members in their professional capacities, including collecting and clipping newspaper and magazine articles about members. The Historian also collects oral and written histories of Colorado's women lawyers.
In furtherance of the Bylaws, the purpose of the History Corner is to showcase and commemorate the historic achievements and milestones of the CWBA and its members. Commemorating the contributions of women in the law increases the visibility of successful women lawyers and creates visible positive role models for current and future generations. Only by understanding how far we have come, can we understand how far we still need to go to help guide the future work of the CWBA.
Let’s continue to make history together to help advance women as leaders in the law!
