It has been said that the lack of diversity in the Supreme Court bar is due to a “dearth in the pipeline”, i.e., a lack of qualified women and racial minorities. The WBA wants to demonstrate how very wrong this is.

WBA past president Jill Dash is featured in Marcia Coyle’s Supreme Court Brief (July 21, 2021), Building a Bank of Female SCOTUS Advocates (law.com subscription needed)

Check out Bloomberg Law’s May 10, 2021 article, Men Repeat at Lectern—Firms, U.S. Drive Supreme Court Gender Gap.

The WBA has compiled a list of women who regularly practice before the U.S. Supreme Court. We are listing their names and contact links on our website as a public resource.
