A glittering celebration to be co-hosted by MALA and LLS

Midlands Asian Lawyers Association & Leicestershire Law Society are pleased to announce that they will be co-hosting an event later this year to celebrate the first 100 Years of Women in Law following the Sex Disqualification (Removal) Act 1919.

District Judge Fayyaz Afzal OBE, President of MALA said, “I am proud we are co-hosting this event to highlight the significant achievements of inspirational women in the legal profession.”

Glynis Wright, President of LLS commented “This is a golden opportunity for the legal and business community of Leicestershire to come together to celebrate the role that culturally diverse female lawyers are making to our profession today – 100 years on after the 1919 Act removed the barrier to women becoming lawyers.”

MALA are committed to encouraging diversity in the legal profession, social mobility and wellbeing.

Leicestershire Law Society has around 700 solicitor and barrister members. They are committed to the care of their members and promoting Leicestershire as a centre of legal excellence.

The event will be held in Leicester with further details to be confirmed.
