PUBLIC POLICY/LEGISLATIVE ACTION
The Public Policy Committee works to promote and protect the interests of women generally. The committee monitors national, state, and local legislation; case law; administrative and constitutional developments; and the print, online and broadcast media as they affect the legal profession, the judiciary, and the interests of women and families. It coordinates with the CWBA's lobbyists; makes recommendations to the CWBA Board of Directors regarding whether the CWBA should support or oppose legislation; and organizes an advocacy network of CWBA members who contact legislators, write letters, testify before legislative committees, and draft legislation. The committee also coordinates the amicus activities of the CWBA.
