Australian Women Lawyers Press Release

Dear Members

As an issue of importance to our members, we attach for your interest a press release from Australian Women Lawyers addressing the recent announcement of 5 new judges to the Federal Court and Federal Circuit Court, all of them male.

Recently elected Australian Women Lawyers President, Elspeth Hensler has issued a media release on 'Where are all the Women Judges?'.  You can access the media release online.

Taking steps to address the under representation of women on the judiciary is among our objectives. We remind members of the recent establishment of our confidential register of women in the ACT and region who are suitable for judicial or tribunal appointments. If you wish to express an interest in being included on the confidential Register we invite you to complete our online Confidential Expression of Interest Form.

Best wishes

WLA ACT Committee
