Are you interested in working in government? Or perhaps in the private sector? Have you dreamed about becoming an associate for a judge?
Women Lawyers Association ACT and ANU Women In Law Organisation invite you to join us for a 'Women in Law Career Panel' on Monday 20 August, from 6:30-7:30pm at ANU.
Our panellists come from a range of backgrounds, and aim to show you that there is not one set path following the completion of a law degree. We welcome you to our first joint event which will include a panel discussion, audience Q&A, followed by informal networking.
