We achieved so much over the past decades, yet there is still a lot to be done. We must increase awareness of hidden biases and subtle discrimination. Therefore, Women in Law’s pursuit for equality of men and women in the legal professions deserves our full support – and the conference is an excellent opportunity to get in touch with so many outstanding people!
