On Wednesday 21 November 2018, WLA ACT had the privilege of hosting an evening with Justice Loukas-Karlsson at Makeshift in New Acton.
Our members and their guests enjoyed a glass of wine, engaged with colleagues, and sat together to listen to the seven vinaigrettes of Her Honour’s life and career, and the “byline” of advice she had found from those moments in time. These moments were fascinating as they were humorous and spanned the diverse and inspiring career of newest appointment to the Supreme Court of the Australian Capital Territory.
It was refreshing to hear from a fellow passionate advocate, activist and mother, juggling to be the best woman she could be. Justice Loukas-Karlsson spoke passionately about the “imposter syndrome” that so often infiltrates the minds of hard working and dedicated women.
Makeshift was a wonderful venue that accommodated the breadth of the legal fraternity who turned out to listen to Justice Loukas-Karlsson. As always, our WLA ACT events are child friendly, and we encourage and look forward to our members bringing their children.
