Congratulations July 2018 Bar Stipend Recipients!

"I am beyond honored to be a recipient of the Orange County Women Lawyers Association 2018 Bar Stipend Award. This stipend has given me an incredible sense of relief and has helped me tremendously during these demanding and stressful weeks of bar preparation. Thank you OCWLA for this opportunity!"

Alizabeth Ramirez

"This stipend has helped me tremendously by providing financial support for me and my family during this time. I now have one less thing to stress about and can give more to my Bar studies.  Thank you OCWLA for your generosity towards me and for all that you do for women in the community. I am truly grateful."

Monique Posada

"I can still remember the wide smile on my face when I got the phone call that I was selected for the 2018 Bar Stipend Award! This award means a lot to my family and me because it is so much more than financial support.  It represents OCWLA’s commitment to supporting and wishing well the future women lawyers of Orange County. I feel incredibly lucky and blessed to have OCWLA by my side as I prepare for the bar exam and cannot wait to begin serving my community through my membership with the OCWLA. Thank you OCWLA!"
