We focus on building an inclusive community based on female/female-identifying empowerment and social mobility in the law.

The City Women in Law Society aims to promote gender equality and empower women in the legal profession. Our society provides a supportive network for female/female-identifying law students and offers a range of events and initiatives to help members develop their skills, build their professional networks, and prepare for their careers. Our events include workshops and panel discussions with female legal professionals, networking events, informal socials and much more. We welcome all, regardless of their previous legal experience and background!
