View Press Release: Women Lawyers Database - November 2005

Our Find A Woman Lawyer database puts our policy work into practice. In our submission to the Inquiry into Balancing Work and Family conducted by the House of Representatives Standing Committee on Family and Human Services we called on federal government to provide funding for networking and mentoring programs for women in the legal profession.

We would welcome any attempt by federal and state government agencies concerned with the provision of legal services to follow our example in devoting resources towards networking and mentoring for women lawyers.

For further information please contact:
Lee-May Saw, Media Officer, on 0417 693 239 or at; or
