International Women in Law research questionnaire: an urgent call for responses

Bates Wells and the Law Society have launched the International Women in Law research project, a significant research exercise geared towards supporting women lawyers globally.

To aid in the understanding of the various ways in which women can be supported, the project is hosting a survey whose findings can help the legal profession to increase opportunities and experiences for women in the sector.

We welcome all views on this important subject and, with this in mind, we call on all of our contacts, friends and peers across the legal sector to take just a few minutes to respond to the twelve questions which make up this survey.

The outcomes from this research will help to form the basis of a toolkit for women in law across the world, not just in the UK. This toolkit will set out practical steps which can be taken to access and build on existing models of support, as well as how to establish these new types of groups.

The survey closes on 14 November so please do submit your contribution without delay. You can answer the survey questions here and if you have any queries in relation to this research please contact Melanie Carter, partner and head of public & regulatory at Bates Wells.
