CLA News / Join in: The Law Society and Bates Wells are collaborating on an international research project to support women lawyers
The Law Society and Bates Wells are collaborating on an international research project to support women lawyers round the world. Our project is striving to address one of the main issues faced by women globally, which is the lack of support mechanisms and/or organisations available to them within the legal sector. This research builds on previous international research carried out by the Law Society.
This current piece is a new step forward in understanding the varying options for support, which will lead to the drafting and publication of a practical toolkit for women in law all around the world. We hope the toolkit will set out steps on how to access and build on existing models of support, as well as how to establish these new types of groups. We strongly believe that more can be done to increase opportunities and experiences for women within the legal profession and our ambition is to help women develop the confidence and knowledge necessary to progress in their legal careers.
This survey will be used as a basis for our toolkit and your insights will contribute greatly to our understanding. The survey has 12 questions which take approximately 10 minutes to answer. All responses are confidential: Take Survey
The survey closes on 14 November 2019. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Melanie Carter.
Please share your experiences to help the Law Society and Bates Wells create a practical toolkit for supporting women in law around the world.
