Corporate membership

WLA ACT is pleased to offer Corporate Membership for the first time for the 2017-18 membership year. 

This is a valuable opportunity for firms and government departments and their lawyers to engage with the ACT legal community and promote the interests of women lawyers at a time when attrition rates for women lawyers continue to remain high.

Corporate Members will enjoy:

  • Discounted membership rates.
  • Recognition on WLA ACT’s website, including display of your logo.
  • The opportunity to partner with WLA ACT on certain events, including the opportunity to exclusively sponsor events.
  • The opportunity to have your firm and its activities in relation to women lawyers profiled in our quarterly newsletter.
  • The opportunity to have one of your lawyers profiled in our ‘Meet a Member’ section.
  • The opportunity to advertise jobs in our newsletter.

Employees of Corporate Members will enjoy attendance at WLA ACT events for free or at member discounted rates, access to a support network of lawyers extending beyond the workplace, informal mentoring, and career advice.

WLA ACT offers early bird membership prices for firms and organisations who sign up before 1 July 2017. Ordinary membership is discounted to $65 (rather than $75), and Associate Membership and Membership for lawyers working at Legal Aid is discounted to $30 (rather than $40). WLA ACT is proud to offer free membership to lawyers at Community Legal Centres.
