Cardiff University Women in Law Society

Woman in Law was created in 2022 as a platform to empower and represent all women in law as both normal citizens and in the profession. It has fostered an excellent community that has allowed the inspiration, education and building of networks for females in the sector. It is inclusive to all demographics with the common goal of empowering women and all gender minorities in the workplace.

"We are founding this society in 2022 at Cardiff University to provide a platform for all women in law, both as citizens but also members of the legal profession. We noticed that there was a significant lack of support offered to women, specifically those from working class backgrounds. So, I decided to form this society to offer an inclusive and caring community hosting events to inspire, educate and help others build their network.

The membership is not limited to female law students and comprises of a variety of degree subjects and genders, all with the common interest in promoting women in law. We offer low cost membership, priced at £2, to all students which allows us to be an accessible and open platform for all. CU Women in Law Society is proud to be a society for all those who identify as women and non-binary. We support all women and gender minorities in claiming their place in the legal industry." - La'Shaunna Williamson (Founder, President)
