History:

In the early 1970's there were few women lawyers in San Diego County. However, San Diego was the focus of the movement in California to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment, which faced opposition in the State Senate. The 24 practicing women lawyers in San Diego at that time formed a new bar association to provide a vehicle to address issues of gender discrimination in the law, in the profession, and in the community.

The name "Lawyers Club of San Diego", suggested by Prof. C. Hugh Friedman, signaled that we are not exclusive to women but open to all who are committed to fair treatment under the law regardless of sex. In 1972, Judith McConnell, Sharron Voorhees, Christine Pate, Lynn Schenk and Louise De Carl Malugen were elected directors of the association. Learn more here.
