Joy in the Law

Promoting Joyful Lawyering



Joy in the Law aspires to bring together attorneys interested in exploring various aspects of happy lawyering. Our goal is to increase the joy of lawyers who are already happy, and to begin the journey towards career happiness of lawyers who are not. We believe that all lawyers can find work that makes them happy most of the time, if not every minute, and a professional life that squares with their values and priorities, whether that’s making millions or having a modest salary but lots more time with their families and friends.


What started initially as a female attorney networking group in Marin eventually became our inaugural Joy in the Law Women's Group in Marin. More recently, we have started a Joy in the Law Women's group in San Francisco. Both groups meet once a month and are a supportive gathering of women with a shared interest in finding greater joy and fulfillment in our law practices and personal lives.

If you are interested in participating in one of our groups, please email us.
