The Australian Women Lawyers Association (AWL) is holding their Annual General Meeting next month at 10:00am on Saturday, 10 November 2018.
WLA ACT is proud to announce Welcome Legal as a Classic Sponsor for the 2018 ACT Women Lawyers Awards.
Over half the people entering the legal profession today are women, yet they do not face a level playing field in the legal industry. To succeed they must overcome many challenges.
This conference brings together some of the most accomplished and inspiring women in public law who will explain how to build the public sector career you want and achieve your professional goals on your terms.
Explore how to contribute to a strong organisational culture, overcome harassment and bias in the workplace, and strengthen your skills so that you can advance your career while obtaining all of your core CPD units.
The conference will be held on Tuesday 27 November at the Hyatt Hotel.
Legalwise has made a generous offer for WLA ACT members - the early bird rate of $760 will be available for all members until the date of the seminar.
Apologies for the confusing hashtag. We recently sat down with Mr Nigel Oram, Barrister of Key Chambers (previously, Principal Solicitor of ACT Government Solicitor) as part of the #WomenLawyersoftheACT series to chat about his views on parenthood and gender equality.
We are proud to announce the following nominees for the upcoming ACT Women Lawyers Awards. All nominees are of an incredibly high calibre and we know the judging panel will have some very difficult decisions ahead of them.
