Welcome to the Fresno County Women Lawyers website!

 

My name is Melissa Marsh, and I am the President of the Fresno County Women Lawyers (FCWL) for 2017.  During my tenure as President, my focus will be on expanding membership benefits, bringing the FCWL into a more streamlined and technologically efficient organization, and re-igniting our partnership with the California Women Lawyers organization.

 

For over 40 years, FCWL has been a mainstay in the Fresno Legal Community. We host a variety of events throughout the year which seek to strengthen the role of women within our legal community… and beyond. Here is a glimpse of what we offer:

 

MCLE luncheons — FCWL hosts monthly luncheons which offer participants one hour of MCLE credit. The luncheons are typically held on the last Wednesday of every month at the Painted Table Restaurant.

 

Judicial Reception — In the late Spring, we host a catered reception honoring Fresno County women who have acceded to the state and federal benches in the past year.

 

Hanson Awards Banquet and Dinner — In the Fall, we host the Justice Pauline Hanson Dinner. The Hanson Dinner is in honor of the first woman (Justice Hanson) appointed to the 5th District Court of Appeals. At our Dinner, now in its 30th year, we honor one local female attorney for her efforts in progressing women’s issues in Fresno, and we invite a keynote speaker to speak to issues affecting our local and state-wide communities.

 

Social and Happy Hours — Throughout the year, we host Social and Happy Hours at various bars and restaurants. This is a great way to mingle, network, and relax!

 

Volunteer Activities — We participate in numerous volunteer events throughout the year. Keep an eye on our calendar for upcoming opportunities.

 

If you would like to be included on our listserve, please email your name and contact information to fcwlpresident@gmail.com and to fcwl.secretary@gmail.com

 

I look forward to an exciting and productive year as your President.
