a fantastic sponsorship opportunity for Canberra businesses and institutions

The 2018 ACT Women Lawyers Awards presents an excellent sponsorship opportunity for Canberra businesses and organisations.

WLA ACT is a not for profit organisation that aims to promote the interests of women lawyers. WLA ACT has the primary objectives of connecting with and supporting women in their legal practice, with our driving focus being: “Connect, Support, Engage”. Our membership base spans a variety of legal backgrounds including private practice, government, in-house counsel, academia, the judiciary and tribunal members. 

Based on the success of the inaugural awards in 2016, we anticipate that the ACT Women Lawyers Awards 2018 will garner significant attention from both our membership base of over 590 members, and also from the broader legal community in the ACT.  Nominees for the awards do not need to be WLA ACT members to be eligible for an award. The Gala Dinner will attract not merely nominees but also their friends, families and colleagues.  We are delighted that well-known author, journalist and broadcaster Tracey Spicer will be our guest speaker.

Our sponsorship categories are outlined below. Please note that some restrictions exist for law firms and legal secondee businesses who wish to be sponsors. Please email us at contact@wlaact.org.au if you are interested in taking up a sponsorship opportunity or would like to discuss an alternative sponsorship arrangement.
