Q&A with Elizabeth Timme - Division Chair for the Women and the Law Division of the Indianapolis Bar Association

June 19, 2018
Q: Why did you join the Women and the Law Division (WLD) of the Indianapolis Bar Association, and how long have you been involved with the organization?
 
A: I’ve been involved with the WLD since 2013. I initially joined, because I wanted to get more involved in the Indianapolis legal community as a post-law school, Indiana transplant. I stayed and got involved in WLD leadership, because it’s inspiring and fun to be a part of a group of engaged, motivated, smart people working hard (and often under the radar) to create opportunities for other women in our community.
