Dear Members & Colleagues

I am pleased to announce that the Law Society of NSW will continue as our Principal Sponsor, and we are delighted to invite you to join us and distinguished guests in celebrating the official launch of our biennial Awards at the Union, University and Schools Club at 5.30pm on 1st June. The event is free, however, bookings are essential and tickets are limited. Further details are noted below.

The President of the Law Society of NSW, Stuart Westgarth will be addressing our guests at our launch following a welcome by our Patron, the Hon Justice Jane Mathews AO. This will be a terrific night and we encourage our members and supporting organizations to register now as there is limited availability at the Union, University and Schools Club.

The Law Society of NSW’s generous support and financial assistance of our organisation will enable the continued funding of our administration and operations. Our increased resources will enable our committee to focus on preparing and hosting forums and events that best serve our objectives and your interests as members.

This is a fantastic opportunity for lawyers to ensure that the accomplishments of their female colleagues are recognised in a significant way.
