No longer is it enough to have a certain number of women be representing a whole gender of women in a world wide industry such as the legal profession. It takes more than just a few familiar faces that seek to show that a male dominated industry can be diverse.
The opportunities are endless, whether those that are created for us, or created by us. There’s a chance for women to not only be a single face in a court council bench filled with male lawyers, but now exists a chance to lead the bench. Young female lawyers must be tenacious, they must keep going till even those around think there’s no more room for improvement, the ceiling is no longer the limit. Male lawyers are confident with the space they have come to occupy, and young female lawyers need to be the same way in terms of believing in themselves and their rightful place within the legal industries.
The most important thing right now, is to be disruptive. Young female lawyers, need to take charge of the status quo, knock on doors and not wait for opportunities come to them. There’s room for growth, there’s jobs to be created and certainly cases to be won.
Women are multifaceted, and this is something that they need to bring about change within the legal industries. On our platform, we have showcased the different roles that young women play in society. No longer is it just one way of being a lawyer. And we need to be steadfast and stand firmly in the idea of female lawyers, seniors and juniors alike, taking stride in the work they can do and the things they can achieve.
We look forward to the remarkable contribution young female lawyers are going to make in the future.
