President's Address


Dear Members,

We are founding this society in 2022 at Cardiff University to provide a platform for all women in law, both as citizens but also members of the legal profession. We noticed that there was a significant lack of support offered to women, specifically those from working class backgrounds. So, I decided to form this society to offer an inclusive and caring community hosting events to inspire, educate and help others build their network.

The membership is not limited to female law students and comprises of a variety of degree subjects and genders, all with the common interest in promoting women in law. We offer low cost membership, priced at £2, to all students which allows us to be an accessible and open platform for all. CU Women in Law Society is proud to be a society for all those who identify as women and non-binary. We support all women and gender minorities in claiming their place in the legal industry. 

We organise exciting social events, informative career based sessions and opportunities for students to make friends with all those aspiring for a legal career. We hope to develop your commercial awareness, which is an asset for entering the profession and develop your network and networking skills. A key aim within the society is helping to develop you individually so that you can be successful in whichever pathway you choose to take to enter the profession (as there are many pathways you may not already know of.)

We are extremely committed to ensuring student well-being with our continued social media and in person presence and a key member of our committee being on hand to personally talk to any student. We are extremely committed to educating the legal sector in what they can do to increase the diversity and inclusion in the profession and therefore our society upholds the core principle of inclusion.

It is a great privilege to have started this society and this year we remain building the foundations so that in years to come it still stands and welcomes generations of women and non-binary individuals. I hope you enjoy being a part of the society and any reviews are welcome.

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions, queries or concerns and I look forward to seeing you in semester 2 :)
