For more than a decade, more females than males have joined the legal profession each year, but a new Queensland Law Society study shows that, amongst other trends, overwhelming numbers of women are leaving the profession in their 30s. This month’s Proctor cover feature reveals the facts about women in the law based on the data for 9000 lawyers who didn’t renew their practising certificate over the last 20 years. Other features in this month’s edition discuss the new laws that will govern the commercial use of drones and look at the Western Australia case in which a court overruled the parents to order chemotherapy for a child. Don’t forget that you can access Proctor and back issues with a convenient app for Android or Apple devices.
