WCLA offers “bundle memberships” to law firms with more than one attorney with a WCLA membership. Simply contact Judy Pfeiffer by email - or by phone - 708-338-0760 to set one up for your firm.

A “bundle membership” is a collection of members who are linked together and managed by one of their members or an administrator.

Advantages of a bundled membership:

        • One administrator for all memberships in the firm. 
        • Each member will have their own separate login but will not be burdened with the renewal paperwork. 
        • The entire bundle is charged a single membership fee ($200 per member), which is paid by the bundle administrator.
        • The bundle administrator can modify a bundle member's profile.

Please begin by selecting the membership level below. Note: Attorney members, your contact information will appear in the WCLA member directory as entered unless you edit your profile settings. Upon completion of the application, you may pay your dues online or print the invoice and mail a check.
