NTWLA MENTORSHIP SCHEME

NTWLA is interested in establishing a Mentorship Scheme for women lawyers with the following aims:

  • To provide NT women lawyers with a readily accessible opportunity to develop relationships across the profession;
  • To foster a culture of information-sharing, networking and support amongst NT women lawyers;
  • To welcome and orientate new women lawyers to the profession and the unique legal landscape of the NT; and
  • To attract new members to NTWLA.

Felicity Gerry QC provided a fantastic prelude to our proposed mentorship scheme at our Patrons Drinks on 8 August 2014. If you would like to read further, a copy of Felicity's speech can be found here.
