WLWA invites all judicial members, women law graduates, newly admitted women legal practitioners and women lawyers to our Meet the Judiciary function to be held on Wednesday 14 October 2015 at the Federal Court from 5:30pm to 7:30pm.

As it is often very daunting, especially for women who have recently joined the legal profession, to appear before a Magistrate or Judge, WLWA is offering this exceptional opportunity to get to know the members of the judiciary a little better and to gain confidence in appearing before them in court. WLWA encourages female graduates and newly admitted women practitioners to take advantage of this opportunity to meet members of the judiciary in person and engage with them in a social conversation.

Drinks and canapés will be served at the function.

Please carefully check the different registration costs set out below. These prices will be displayed when you click on one of the register buttons found below or here.

All members of the judiciary are admitted for free.

The cost for non-member women graduates and non-member newly admitted women practitioners is $35.

However, any women graduates and any newly admitted women practitioners who are, or become, members of Women Lawyers of Western Australia (with a 2015/2016 subscription) before the event can register for free. 

Join or renew your subscription here.

WLWA Members and women LSWA Members can register for $50.

All women practitioners are also invited to attend the historic Women in the Profession Group Photograph that precedes this event at 5pm sharp on the steps from the Federal Court building to the rear of the Perth Concert Hall. Please register for this event separately here.

BARRISTER SPEED INTRODUCTIONS

Connecting Instructing Lawyers & Women Barristers 

20160929 Speed Intro

Join Women Lawyers of Western Australia at our first ever Speed Introductions Event for an informative networking evening connecting private practice and government agency instructors with women barristers. This is a valuable opportunity to take effective, demonstrable action to increase the number of women barristers briefed.

When:        Thursday 29 September 2016, 5.30pm to 7.30pm

Where:       Foyer of old Supreme Court of Western Australia

Register:  Below - please select registrant type ('woman barrister' or 'private practice or government lawyer') in the online form

Cost:         Free for women barristers

                  Free for private practice and government lawyers

Drinks and canapes will be served.

Registration is essential and numbers are limited!

The aim of this networking event is to raise the number of women barristers that are briefed to narrow the gender gap at the bar. One of Australia's most senior female barristers, Fiona McLeod, SC, said the bar was among the worst professions for unequal pay, due in part to the lack of opportunities for women to work on more expensive cases, despite their experience.

Ms McLeod said that the same pool of barristers may be being briefed out of "habit", while unconscious bias also played a role. WLWA wants to help promote the talent of women barristers in Perth by providing a platform for them to talk to private practice and government lawyers about their skills, experience, expertise and interests.

Please come prepared with your business card, elevator pitch and ready to make some great connections. Be a part of the cultural shift that encourages instructing lawyers to seek out women barristers appropriate for the relevant matter.
