 "Women in the Law UK is about supporting the next leaders in Law and encouraging career progression through personal development. The next stage is finding a way to progress social mobility in the profession and learning from our colleagues in Business"  Founder - Sally Penni 

Women in the Law UK is a women's networking organisation with events designed to encourage, inspire and support the next generation of Lawyers and Women in Business. The events give a chance for young women starting or at various stages of their careers to talk to senior women & men about the profession. 

Allowing junior and senior members to learn from each other, connecting the Law and Business.


Women in the Law UK support the Wellbing at the bar initiative. All our events are designed with wellbeing in mind and at the heart of it especially our up coming events Resilience, Health & Wellbeing, and Financial Health Check.

Each of our events provides access to a coach and a councillor for conversations in strictest confidence.
