Since the beginning of her work as judge 36 years ago, the special concern of the President of the Supreme Court of Austria, ElisabethLovrek, has been to ensure that the judiciary performs its important duties efficiently and well. It was and is important to her that qualified women successfully apply for high positions in the judiciary.
Equal opportunities for women in legal professions should be a matter of course today. This not only benefits the woman concerned, but also the company or organization and, of course, its clients. The Women in Law Initiative helps with this goal and gives women the opportunity to network as men have always done.
