Wednesday Wonderful Collection - Arkansas Association of Women Lawyers records, MS.000218

The Arkansas Association of Women Lawyers drew up their original constitution on January 7, 1967. Membership was to include active members, defined as women lawyers residing in the state of Arkansas; associate members, defined as women clerks and deputy clerks of courts; and at-large membership, defined as women lawyers from out-of-state who retain membership in the Arkansas Bar. The constitution stated that "The object of the association was to secure a closer bond of fellowship among women lawyers of the State of Arkansas, in furtherance of the interests of women lawyers and their better service to the legal profession."

This collection contains correspondence, minutes, and notices of Arkansas Association of Women Lawyers (AAWL) meetings. It also includes membership lists and records from the Little Rock Association of Women Lawyers, and the National Association of Women Lawyers. The records contain information on early women lawyers in Arkansas, as well as papers kept by past presidents of the AAWL.
