The Law Society of Northern Ireland was buzzing with inspiration and empowerment as Legal Women UK hosted an enlightening event.
Sponsored by Eileen Donaghey and Caldwell & Robinson Solicitors, the evening focused on discussing the challenges that women face in the legal sphere, and highlighted the Law Society’s crucial current research project on female leavers within the solicitor profession.
Nuala McMahon opened the conversation by speaking of the Society’s commitment to continue to carry out research regarding the female legal experience. The panel speakers, Julie Huddleston, Emma McCloskey and Jade O’Kane, then engaged the audience with their personal experiences, shedding light on the obstacles women encounter in the legal field. Chaired by Coral Hill, the discussion sparked meaningful conversations and a renewed commitment to driving change.
The event, a sold-out affair, brought together a group of legal professionals and aspiring individuals, all passionate about gender equality. The question and answer session that followed proved that attendees were united in their shared vision for a more inclusive legal sector.
