Photography Celebration 2024:



To commemorate International Women’s Day, we are inviting Women in Law to share a photograph and short story of a pivotal moment in their career. This could be an opportunity to highlight achievements, challenges overcome, or moments of empowerment. By showcasing these stories and images, we aim to celebrate the diversity, resilience, and contributions of women in law, inspiring future generations and fostering a more inclusive and equitable legal community. 

10 entrants will be selected for a full portrait (possibly revisiting the location where the original photograph was taken) and an interview to be included in a future Next 100 Years campaign that celebrates how women in the legal profession have achieved success.


8 March 2024 – 8 May 2024


  • Open to Women in Law.
  • Participants must practise in the UK and be above the age of 18.
