About the Women's Caucus

Since its inception in 1997, one of the primary objectives of the Women’s Caucus Section has been to promote women trial lawyers in all areas of the association. Members of the caucus play instrumental roles in many FJA activities including legislative efforts, the political arena and our CLE program. The caucus works hand in hand with the FJA and its mission of preserving our civil justice system and protecting the rights and safety of Florida’s citizens.

The caucus consists of up to 16 member Board of Directors. The board meets via conference call to which all members of the FJA are invited and encouraged to attend. In addition to other activities, the caucus hosts the Women’s Caucus “Lobby Days” in Tallahassee during the legislative session, participates and promotes women speakers at CLE seminars throughout the year and gather at all major FJA events to socialize and network. Membership in the caucus is open to both men and women and is included with your FJA membership. Goals of the Women’s Caucus include:

  • Build membership and raise the profile of women trial attorneys in the FJA;
  • Identify and promote women speakers at Continuing Legal Education Programs and FJA Conventions;
  • Identify and promote diversity and minorities in both the Caucus and FJA;
  • Identify and encourage women to participate on committees and offices within the Caucus and FJA;
  • Facilitate the networking of Women Caucus members, FJA members and members of the Florida Bar;
  • Inform and educate Caucus members about ways to strengthen the FJA, the Caucus and their individual practices;
  • Present a program at the annual FJA convention or Workhorse Seminar;
  • Plan and participate annually in FJA Caucus Lobby Days and to otherwise facilitate and participate in FJA lobbying efforts;
  • Participate in the various regional FL PAC Task Forces;
  • Publish periodic articles and report upcoming and past events in the FJA Journal;
  • Highlight the achievements and accomplishments of FJA Women Caucus members in the profession.
