Women Lawyers from various States in India came together and voiced their intention and interest to start an organization of women lawyers of the country. A group of these lawyers met at New Delhi in March 2007 and agreed to form an organization for the benefit of women lawyers and named it "All India Federation Of Women Lawyers" (i.e. “AIFWL”). They formed an Executive Body which elected a Committee, who drafted the Bye-laws of AIFWL and the same were thereafter finalized by the Executive Body. All India Federation Of Women Lawyers thus came into being and was registered formally as an Association under the Society's Registration Act, with its registered office at Bangalore.

After the formal establishment of AIFWL, the Executive Committee decided to organize Asia Women Lawyers Conference at Bangalore. A very successful two day conference was hosted at Bangalore on 22nd and 23rd September 2007, which attracted more than 500 women lawyers from all over ASIA. The conference was a huge success with the significant presence of Women Lawyers from Africa, America and Europe. Judges, eminent jurists, legal luminaries, scholars and political leaders addressed the Conference.
