For some time more than 50% of students graduating with law degrees have been women, despite this, they have always been underrepresented in senior ranks of the legal profession.
TWL aims to improve this situation by providing opportunities for its members to meet in a supportive environment to network, exchange information and experiences, encourage each other and foster mentoring of more junior members. TWL also actively looks for opportunities to lobby for improvements in the structure of legal profession and the law in general, particularly as it affects women.
Tasmanian Women Lawyers would like to thank its 2017 sponsors (logos coming soon). This support is invaluable in assisting the TWL to progress events of interest, importance and relevance to women lawyers in Tasmania.
