WIDR MEMBERSHIP DIRECTORY
The WIDR Membership Directory is a searchable pdf of WIDR members. Click here to access the directory.
In order to assist those seeking to increase the diversity of their selection of neutrals, we have provided information on specific practice areas, types of practice, and geographic location along with website links.
The list will also help us improve our internal communications. The list includes a greater depth of information than is currently available on members’ ABA website profiles to facilitate our networking and other Committee related activities.
This is a listing of those who responded to the survey we sent out in February and as such is not comprehensive. You can find a complete listing of WIDR members on the website: WIDR Committee Roster.
For our members who may have missed the opportunity to respond to the February survey, the membership list will be updated on an annual basis. We will send an email notification early in 2015 as and will also include a reminder in the monthly report.
This is our first effort to create a detailed membership list. We welcome your suggestions for improvements.
