WLA ACT encourages eligible and qualified women to apply for the vacancy, and to let us know if you intend to do so in order for us to support your application where appropriate.  WLA ACT is committed to doing what it can to increase the numbers of women appointed to the judiciary and quasi-judicial and statutory positions.  We believe that this is both an issue of equity for individual women, and that increasing the numbers of women judges, magistrates and tribunal members has important benefits within the Australian legal system. 

WLA ACT takes this opportunity to remind members of the profession that we maintain a confidential register of women suitable for judicial and tribunal appointment so that we may take a proactive stance when vacancies become available. Please complete our online registration form if you would like to be on our confidential register.
