Women Judges

The Women Judges Committee of the Women’s Bar Association of the State of New York shall assist WBASNY and its members in maintaining and improving relations and enhancing communication between the members of the bar and the women members of the city, state and federal judiciary in New York, including state and federal judges, and municipal, state and federal administrative law judges, hearing officers and referees. The Committee shall also serve as a forum for women judges to share information and resources to assist each other in the performance of their judicial functions and in service to justice and the Courts. In addition, this Committee shall study and make recommendations regarding improvements in the judicial system, with emphasis on improvements affecting women, and shall perform such other functions as will improve the administration of justice in this regard.

In cooperation with the Executive Director of WBASNY, this Committee shall meet periodically at WBASNY meetings throughout the year as necessary, and will also promote a meeting for members of the judiciary who are also members of WBASNY to be held during the annual Convention each year.
