Women Leaders in Law

We want to make female leaders visible. More women than men qualify as solicitors according to statistics published by The Law Society, and yet only a small percentage have made it to leadership positions. First 100 Years wants to highlight the achievements of these incredible women, and also open the discussion as to why there are so few women at the top of the legal profession.

We have compiled this list of women leaders from across the legal profession to record their legacy as pioneers of law: those who have risen to the top roles in their profession. Please get in touch at [email protected] if you know a woman leader in law who you would like to nominate to the list.

Some leading female entrepeneurs in legal services have written an open letter to GCs to support women led businesses in the coronavirus crisis. You can read the letter here:
