Do you know a woman lawyer leading the way?

The QLS Agnes McWhinney Award, named after Queensland’s first admitted female solicitor, recognises outstanding professional or community contribution by a woman lawyer and the significant involvement of women in the legal profession and the community.

The award acknowledges a modern legal pioneer who will leave a meaningful professional legacy for women following in her footsteps.

Nominees must be a current member of Queensland Law Society and demonstrate outstanding achievements in both community and legal endeavours. Past, present and continuing contributions and achievements spanning the course of the candidate’s career will be taken into account.

The award will be presented at the Women Lawyers Association of Queensland (WLAQ) Annual Awards Dinner held on Friday 21 October 2016.

Nominations are now closed.
