LWOB is overseen by three (3) boards:

LWOB is managed by three relatively small boards and an advisory council consisting of representatives from LWOB’s major private donors.  Our board members on all three boards are “working” board members, who tend to be very engaged with the organization by contributing in areas of their respective expertise, volunteering to represent LWOB at events, or volunteering as trial advocacy trainers and trial observers. Our board members, while concentrated in the legal profession, include individuals from accountancy, public relations, and educational sectors.
