The Wollongong chapter of Women Lawyers’ Association of NSW, with generous sponsorship from Shine Lawyers, and in conjunction with the University of Wollongong School of Law, would like to invite all LAWYERS (male, female, private practice, in-house, at the bar, academic…) and LAW STUDENTS to a FREE event to celebrate Law Week.
This event is an opportunity to chat in short timed sessions in a relaxed setting.
It presents a great chance for law students to practice their networking skills, while members of the profession can get in touch with the next generation of lawyers – as well as (overdue) catch ups with colleagues and friends. Book early as numbers are limited!
We warmly invite you to join, or renew if your membership is lapsed. Members that have lapsed and new members may join valid to 30 June 2023. Auto renew and pre-payment options are available. 2023YE membership is now open!
Join us in representing women lawyers and the wider profession, as we have for almost 70 years. We will continue to provide leadership in matters affecting women and the legal profession, by driving and advocating for change.
