Women, Legacy and the Law
Co-hosted by Next 100 Years and Oxford's Centre for Socio-Legal Studies
Online - Thursday 11 March, 6:30 - 7:45pm
We hope you will join us and the Oxford Centre for Socio-Legal Studies to help celebrate International Women's Day 2021!
The event will explore why it is important for us, as women, to share our personal experiences and record our testimonies for posterity. The panelists and audience will be asked to consider the role and value of women's groups and networks in fostering women's empowerment and professional advancement. We have a fantastic line up of speakers who are actively supporting and promoting women lawyers in their careers, including our founder Dana Denis-Smith, who you can view below.
