Since its inception in 1981 and its subsequent incorporation in 1991, HAWL has promoted and recognized the contributions of women within the legal profession and judiciary, improved the administration of justice, disseminated legal knowledge to all members of the community and particularly to women, and improved relations among members of the Bar, the Judiciary and the public.
