The Importance of the Silent Auction at the NCAWA Conference

The North Carolina Association of Women Attorneys (“NCAWA”) provides scholarships to deserving female students attending each of the state’s law schools. This award has been named in honor of retired Chief Justice Sarah Parker of the Supreme Court of North Carolina.  The scholarships funds are raised during the silent auction portion of the Annual Conference. The better silent auction donations we receive, the more we can give towards the scholarships.

NCAWA scholarship recipients are leaders in their law schools and in their communities. They are aware of the obstacles women attorneys face and display a willingness to meet and challenge those obstacles. Additionally, NCAWA scholarship recipients  best exemplify, in their approach to the study and future practice of law, the incorporation of NCAWA’s goals of assuring the effective participation of women in the justice system and in public office, promoting the rights of women under the law, and promoting and improving the administration of justice.
