About the Women in Law Summit

Following 2018’s sell-out event, we are back with the most eye-opening, educational and inspirational event yet!

Since 1990, women have represented more than 60% of new entrants into law, yet there is still a high attrition rate. This means female talent is not equally represented in the higher echelons - only 28% of partners are women.

We can work towards both equality and equity by sharing and learning from one another and supporting each other in our career.

Through a combination of inspiring keynotes, panel discussions on how to solve industry challenges, interactive workshops, and networking opportunities, the Women in Law Summit enables people and organisations to do just this.

Are you hungry for practical insights and tips to help fulfil your personal and professional goals?

Would you like to network with your peers across the industry and learn from others facing common challenges?

Are you ready to learn how to improve diversity and inclusion within your organisation?

Join a vibrant community of over 1,000 professionals and let’s make the legal industry diverse, inclusive and progressive. It’s time to step up to the stand!
