Networking events & CLEs
We hold regular events which provide an invaluable opportunity for guests to gather and network with each other as well as hear from a range of speakers including experienced barristers, law firm partners, in-house counsel, sole practitioners and job share partners who each juggle busy legal careers with the demands of young children and family life. Other speakers include experienced career and lifestyle coaches.
We also hold child-friendly CLEs where lawyers are welcome to bring their babies and toddlers. Professional nanny support is available at these CLEs to assist parents.
Our events are open to everyone – all lawyers – male and female (with or without children), non-lawyers, employers, search firm professionals, HR managers and other interested guests.
Please subscribe to our newsletter so we can keep you informed about our events.
