Project update on ARC Linkage (LP190100966)
This project investigates how women and men understand and experience the changing nature of work in the law. Using innovative and engaged research design, the project will generate new knowledge about the gendered dimensions of workplace change and workplace dynamics.
The project is a collaboration with the University of Sydney, the Australian National University, the Law Society of NSW, and the Women Lawyers Association of NSW.

This is the eighth year of the law firm comparison project.
Renee Bianchi, WLANSW President, says: “It is encouraging that our data shows continual improvement in the number of women in senior leadership positions in the profession, and a reduction in firms promoting only men to partnership.
We hope that the flexible work practices that have been adopted through the pandemic will continue and this will lead to greater diversity in workplace culture and structure.
More work needs to be done. Cultural change cannot continue at a glacial pace if we wish to retain and promote greater numbers of women in the legal profession.”
