13/5/00: Invitation to Australian women law students
On behalf of the National Women's Justice Coalition and Australian Women Lawyers and as part of National Law Week, I would like to invite questions and discussion about women in legal practice on the womlawstu email list. There are already almost 100 Australian women law students on the list. If you are not on the list and you are a woman law student at any Australian Law School you are very welcome to join the list now for this discussion.
Practising women lawyers will participate in the womlawstu email list during Law Week 2000 to offer their insights and assistance to women law students who have questions about legal careers and workplace issues.
Women law students in NSW may wish to visit the WLA NSW website for information on our special Law Week seminars on "Law as a Career" in Sydney, Wollongong and Newcastle and our "Coming to the Bar" seminar in Sydney see www.wlansw.asn.auDominique Hogan-Doran

The National Women's Justice Coalition Inc. (NWJC) provides a free email list for women law students in Australia. The list is called womlawstu and is for information sharing and networking. The list is considering whether there is a role/need for a national network of women law students in Australia and, if so, the purposes and structure of the network.
If you want to be part of these discussions you are welcome to join the list ...
