Why the AWLA exists
It is evident that in today’s society discrimination continues to remain an ongoing problem within the legal profession, with a majority of women not reaching their maximum potential or even senior positions. The percentage of women who make up the legal profession is staggeringly low, and our aim as an organisation is to challenge and change these figures and ensure black women lawyers reach their maximum potential. The AWLA opposes any form of discrimination and encourage equal opportunities for all.
We believe that together we are stronger, and this is the main way to develop our businesses and ourselves as women. We simply cannot rely on others to do it for us....
