The Australian Women Lawyers (AWL) Conference 2018 will be the highlight conference for female practitioners, leaders and senior professionals across the Australian legal sector.

This year the conference will be held in Sydney from 25-26 August 2018 at the Sofitel Wentworth Sydney.

The theme for the AWL National Conference is ‘Investing in the Future’. This theme will capture current issues of innovation and technology and the law, including the utilisation of innovation and technology as an essential tool for new and senior lawyers in the furthering of diversity and inclusion, quality leadership, best practice, flexible work options, the achievement of policy and law reform, and attainment of access to justice.

The conference program includes a formal Welcome Reception for all delegates and a Gala Dinner at which the Australian Women Lawyers Award will be presented.

In the 14th year since the Inaugural AWL Conference was last held in Sydney, AWL 2018 is a key opportunity to hear from an exciting program of speakers you might not otherwise have an opportunity to hear from in your state or territory.
