Each fall, we honor several Illinois women law students with a scholarship to recognize their high educational credentials, contributions to their communities and enthusiasm for a future career in law.  Esther Rothstein, who led the Foundation for many years, believed that the money raised should go to the students and thus started the long tradition of the “spaghetti lunch.”  Please join us each Fall, hear the remarkable stories of the students we honor, enjoy a great spaghetti luncheon and spend time with both new and old friends.

PLEASE JOIN US for the 2017 SCHOLARSHIP AWARD LUNCHEON

The Women’s Bar Foundation was established 50 years ago with the purpose  to  provide  scholarships to  deserving  and  qualified  women students in accredited Illinois law schools and to honor accomplished women lawyers and judges. This year, the Women’s Bar Foundation will be awarding scholarships  to  nine  exceptional  law  students.

Women’s Bar Foundation will pay tribute to: Illinois Supreme Court Justice Anne M.
