DURHAM/ORANGE WOMEN ATTORNEYS (DOWA)

DOWA has been a chapter of the North Carolina Association of Women Attorneys since 1998, originally as two separate chapters which later merged into one. Although most DOWA members are either small firm or solo practitioners, DOWA has typically had the most law student members of any chapter since its service area includes the law schools of Duke University, North Carolina Central University, and the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill.
