Funding grants for women’s leadership development

Women in the legal sector are advised that a residual pool of scholarship funding is currently available to participate in a range of leadership development programs commencing in the second half of 2017. The funding batch has been provisioned for this financial year and must be awarded by June 30.

WLA has a vested interest in improving the health and diversity of the legal industry, and our Charter recognises the important and positive role that women can contribute as a result of increased participation, particularly at senior/executive levels within organisations.

The fee support opportunity is not expected to be available in the foreseeable future once this funding window closes.
