Coastal Women Attorneys (CWA)
CWA hosted a CLE on April 26th featuring the Honorable Judge Richard Dietz of the North Carolina Court of Appeals, who spoke on the practice of appellate law.
For nearly 30 years the women attorneys in New Hanover County have given a scholarship to a deserving high school student at the YWCA annual Women of Achievement Event. Coastal Women Attorneys held a fundraiser for the scholarship on April 28th at the home NCAWA/CWA Member, Delores Williams. CWA suggested attendees donate the equivalent of one billable hour. The YWCA annual Women of Achievement Event will be held on May 5, 2016.
NCAWA's Community Outreach Committee is leading this historic effort. Please join NCAWA in furthering its mission to advance the rights of women under the law through its 2016 partnership with Legal Aid of North Carolina!
Why the need to partner with Legal Aid of N.C.?
Last year, Legal Aid of North Carolina lost 51 employees due to drastic state budget cuts. This has made the already challenging task of providing free legal services to the women and their children even more challenging. So we encourage you to handle at least one pro bono case this year with your local Legal Aid office. How? Contact the Legal Aid office in your local area, and request to speak to the Private Attorney Volunteer (“PAI”) Coordinator in that office. The PAI Coordinator in any Legal Aid office can assist you with becoming a volunteer attorney, and assign you a pro bono case.
