President’s Message

Carrie Anne Cavallo Brooklyn Women’s Bar Association President
Carrie Anne Cavallo

Brooklyn Women’s
Bar Association President

I am honored to serve as the 58th President of the Brooklyn Women’s Bar Association (BWBA) and excited to work with our new board and membership towards our collective goals of educating and empowering all attorneys regardless of their race, religion, sexual orientation, group or class.  

On April 11, 2018, the Brooklyn Women’s Bar Association (BWBA) celebrated its 100th Anniversary, a historic event and a fitting reminder that we are the oldest chapter member of the Women’s Bar Association of the State of New York (WBASNY). WBASNY is the second largest bar association in the State of New York with over 4,000 members.  I am humbled to be a part of this pioneering organization which has offered opportunities and camaraderie to so many for so long. It has been my pleasure to work with amazing women and men on prior boards, and I am certain that this board will effectively tackle the challenges ahead and continue the demanding work of our predecessors.   Although we are in name a “women’s” bar, we proudly admit and encourage all New York attorneys and judiciary to join us in our quest to provide a professional network and support system for all attorneys and members of the judiciary. We offer affordable legal education programs to our members and engage in community outreach efforts to help the broader community.
