The Society of Women Lawyers - India (SOWL) is a platform for Indian women lawyers to connect on issues relating to women lawyers and the workplace: hurdles faced by women in becoming partners in law firms, general counsel of large companies, and senior advocates in the High Courts and Supreme Courts.

We organize Continuing Legal Education Programs to update members on cutting-edge issues facing the legal profession, such as social networking. SOWL, in partnership with iProBono, connects lawyers seeking to contribute to society with worthy projects that need legal advice.

SOWL held its second Annual Conference, along with its Second Annual General Meeting, on July 20, 2013. Themed "Law, Social Change and Gender", the event brought together prominent lawyers, academics and policy-makers who have been carefully handpicked to represent diverse backgrounds.

The violent sexual assault perpetrated on a student last year in Delhi captured public imagination, and reminded us of the urgency of discussing legal and social change to protect the interests of women. SOWL aimed to bring together various voices that are influencing law and policy pertaining to violence against women, as part of its 2013 Annual Conference.

The Annual General Meeting was followed by the 2013 Annual Conference. Justice Leila Seth delivered the keynote address. The discussions during the course of the day focused on: The implementation of Verma Committee Report, Reforms required to the Police System, Women and Work, Women in Conflict Zones.
