Women in Law – Outreach

We are very excited to formally release the first step in our Outreach initiative. In what has been a challenging year which has exacerbated educational inequalities, we hope that this publication inspires our diverse rangatahi – especially those from low decile or low socioeconomic backgrounds.

In producing Outreach, we were lucky enough to speak to the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court Dame Helen Winkelmann and the President of the New Zealand Law Society Tiana Epati, as well as a range of high-achieving wāhine from Auckland Law School who attended decile 1-4 high schools. We are immensely grateful to all of our contributors for their insights.

Women in Law stands in solidarity with those who have been disproportionately impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and strongly believes in the importance of a diverse legal profession which can serve people from all walks of life. We hope this publication illustrates that there is a place for you at law school and the legal profession, and that you have the potential to make truly impactful change.
