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.

Share the flyer with your friends & colleagues (or send them this hyperlink Speed Introductions Event).

To celebrate the October 13 release of Joe Cinque's Consolation, we have 10 free double passes available to WLWA members to see the movie, thanks to our friends at Titan View (the distributor).

Joe Cinque was killed in 1997 when his girlfriend sedated him with Rohypnol before injecting him with a lethal dose of heroin. Joe's friends and colleagues failed to intervene as Anu Singh's bizarre plans unfolded. She was later found to have had diminished responsibility. The movie is an adaptation of Helen Garner's multi-award winning and best-selling account of the events surrounding the crime that shocked Australia. It exams collective and individual responsibility for the tragic outcome. 

The film sold out in its two sessions at the Melbourne International Film Festival, where it had its World Premiere earlier this year.

Members must LOGIN to register. Members can only register to receive one double pass and it will be sent by post to the address used in the member's registration form. WLWA will not be liable for items lost in the post.

The movie is currently scheduled to open at Luna Palace on 13 October 2016. The tickets must be presented at the box office to receive two complimentary tickets but are not valid on public holidays, cinema discount days, Saturdays after 5pm, for special events, for Q&A screenings or with any other offer. The ticket does not guarantee admission, is subject to seat availability and you should check the local cinema for further exclusions.
