Leadership is a privilege and I am extraordinarily grateful for the opportunity to have served as Chair of the Litigation Section this past year. As I prepare to pass the baton, I cannot help but reflect on how much I have learned from the attorneys and judges with whom I have had the honor of working with.

The experience of abortion is something millions of women have experienced for many decades, but there [...]
A Leap of Faith Mary McKelvey, WLALA President I jumped out of a perfectly good airplane from approximately thirteen thousand feet above the earth a couple of weeks ago. This was voluntary on my part. A dear friend and mentor had a transformative experience with his first jump a couple years ago and his enthusiasm after several more jumps was both infectious and inspiring. Thus, I was persuaded to my “yes.” We boarded a small plane and sat on a hard bench with ten or so others. As the plane ascended, I watched the surface of the [...]
Incoming WLALA President's Message: Mary McKelvey Twenty years ago, I walked into a large hotel ballroom room filled with women lawyers and judges and had an experience that forever changed the trajectory of my life. At the time I was a first-year law student in my late thirties attending the annual dinner as a guest of a friend who had previously been president of the organization. The energy in the room that night was palpable. The raw power that exuded from these confident, elegant, and educated women was exhilarating—I had never before been in the presence of so [...]
