Women in the Legal Profession

The Law Society believes it must take practical steps to address the gender imbalance in leadership roles in the legal profession. Raising awareness of the issues is essential, but so is the development and communication of ways in which individuals and organisations can help to bring about change.

In this section you will find news, information, research, resources, events and organisations of interest to all lawyers, but particularly to women lawyers and employers.
