Mattie Belle Davis

Belle Davis Society





The Mattie Belle Davis Society was established in 2004 to honor Judge Davis and to enable members to contribute directly to FAWL initiatives. Judge Davis, a founding member of FAWL at its inception in 1951, and who remained active in the association until her death fifty-three years later, inspires us all with her life-long commitment to equal opportunity, justice and the success of women in the law.

As a member, you know that part of your regular dues is set aside for services that FAWL provides on a state-wide level. Through the generous support of Mattie Belle Davis Society sponsors, FAWL has been able to not only broaden the scope of its benefits to local chapters, but also to enhance the quality of its presence and initiatives on a state-wide basis, including

  • Increasing FAWL legislative presence in Tallahassee, including funding assistance to FAWL lobbying initiatives and FAWL Lobby Days;
  • Assuring FAWL participation and involvement in The Florida Bar Board of Governors;
  • Assuring FAWL visibility and participation at state-wide meetings of The Florida Bar;
  • Supporting the presence and participation of FAWL chapters at state-wide planning events;
  • Membership and representation with the National Conference of Women’s Bar Associations and National Association for Women Lawyers;
  • Providing discounts and member benefits; and
  • Providing unique state-wide member benefits, such as the extensive library of complementary CLE available our members through the FAWL website.
