Dear Members and Friends,
As we approach the end of the year, we continue to bring you events with inspired and inspiring speakers, particularly in locations outside of the Sydney CBD.
In case you missed our recent ‘Vicarious Trauma’ event in Newcastle & ‘Secrets from inside successful regional law firms’ event in Wollongong, visit our Photo Gallery to see the photos from the night as well as the fabulous presentations that our presenters have generously shared.
Our ‘Law Firm Comparison Data’ Project and ‘Advancement of Women in Law Firms: Best Practice’ pilot research project, was launched by our Patron, the Honourable Acting Justice Jane Mathews AO, at a cocktail event on Tuesday 19th September. The reports and data may be viewed on our WorkPlace Practices page by clicking here. Please click here to view the event photo gallery.
