Leading female junior counsel in NSW State Government
As legal practitioners we are all responsible for doing what we can to promote and achieve equitable practices. One of the areas that requires greater commitment from all firms and our clients is the advancement and retention of female counsel.
The lack of knowledge of, or connection with, female junior counsel is a barrier to equitable briefing practices. At Maddocks, we decided that we could help raise the profile of female junior counsel, assisting them to build their experience and connections, and in doing so, supporting our colleagues in making more diverse choices on who to brief or recommend.
Maddocks NSW State Government Sector team is excited to be rolling out our campaign series Lifting the Bar. This series provides a platform where we can all get to know leading female barristers across different areas of practice, with a particular focus on the NSW Government sector. Each series collates profiles of female junior counsel, so you can get to know them on a professional and personal level.
