Why First 100 Years is Important
The First 100 Years project is both a wonderful celebration and an important reminder that the place of women in our legal system has been hard fought and that headway has been made by the resolute determination of practitioners. Every career progression and every judicial appointment changes the norm for our justice system and improves the perception of access to justice to everyone’s advantage. By remaining strong and supporting our colleagues to develop and retain excellent legal practices, we will continue the path our predecessors set. The First 100 Years project commemorates that journey with all its accomplishments and hurdles. I am excited to help change the landscape started 100 Years ago and re-fashioned throughout the last century, for one that is more equal and inclusive – and more effective as a result.
