What will it take to continue advancing women in law over the next 100 years?

In 2018 we reached 100 years of women practising law across the majority of Australian states.  While the legal industry has seen significant change and movement during this time, there are still opportunities to innovate and challenge traditional thinking. This journey continues as we look to the future from year 101.

In recognition of this, McCullough Robertson created Year 101: Women in Law.

Year 101: Women in Law is a forward-focused conversation exploring the challenges, opportunities and vision for the next 100 years, and what it will take to continue progressing women within the law.

To celebrate the impact and influence of women in the legal industry we’re profiling 101 women who are leading the way. We look forward to introducing our first #celebratingwomeninlaw profiles soon.


Earlier in 2019, McCullough Robertson hosted a signature event in Sydney, bringing together nearly 200 people from the legal community to hear a panel of high profile senior women in the Australian legal industry discuss the challenges for the next 100 years.

We are continuing this conversation at our next event in Brisbane on 24 October 2019.

If you would like to attend, or to find out more on the panel members and the topics they will explore during the event please register.



We’d love to hear from you.
