Quinnipiac University’s Women’s Law Society was recently awarded the 2018 Ms. JD Honors Law School Chapter Award at the Ms. JD Honors Reception at the UCLA School of Law.

The Ms. JD Honors Law School Chapter Award is presented annually to a chapter that advocates the advancement of women law students through chapter initiatives, programming or recruitment.

Quinnipiac’s Women’s Law Society, which became an active member of Ms. JD in 2016, is dedicated to supporting women in the profession and promoting diversity through its all-inclusive approach.

“We are so thrilled that the WLS received the award,” said Katelyn Day, president of Quinnipiac’s Women’s Law Society. “Diversity in the legal profession is such an important mission and it means so much to know that our organization and our law school is contributing to that.”

Ms. JD, a non-profit founded in 2006, seeks to support and improve the experiences of women law students and lawyers. The organization strives to give voice to why it matters that women continue to overcome barriers to achieve gender equality in the profession.
