The legal profession today: who are we and why it matters?
In July the 2020 National Profile of Solicitors was released. For the first time ever, female solicitors out number their male counterparts in every jurisdiction. Juliana will reflect on these historic demographic changes and share what the Law Society of NSW is doing to help ensure the profession grows stronger, more diverse and inclusive.
