My career as a woman has seen me grow to be an influential corporate lawyer in Australia.
I’m a father, I’m married and I’ve been honoured to represent companies in a range of roles, including corporate law.
I’ve done the legal equivalent of wearing my ‘toy’ in the workplace, and it’s paid off.
My life as a business analyst has been a little different.
I began my career as an accountant working for a large and well-respected Australian accounting firm in the mid-1980s.
In 1984 I moved to New Zealand, where I was employed as a financial planner.
When I moved back to Australia, I found my way into the legal profession.
It was during my time as a planner that I first noticed a lot of women were becoming lawyers.
I was amazed by how many of the women who I’d met were now lawyers.
As a lawyer I was always amazed by the women I saw who had a passion for law and who wanted to do their part to help women across Australia.
I think it was the law that was inspiring me the most, because I felt that what I did for the women was very personal.
I knew that the law was something that I wanted to give back to society, and I thought that was a very good way to do that.
After my return to Australia I did some freelance work in the commercial and financial sectors and I started a family.
During this time I also became involved with the Women in Law and the Law Network (WELN), which I joined in 1998.
The WELN is an organisation that promotes women in law and is committed to improving the representation of women in the legal sector.
The organisation was founded by former lawyer Helen Jones, who also ran the Law Council of Australia.
It aims to encourage and support women in their careers by supporting them to work as partners in law, to lead and to have influence in the law profession.
It’s a very powerful organisation that I was involved with for a long time, and have been very fortunate to have the support of the Australian Legal Services Union.
At the time I was very proud of my career, but I was also very conscious that I needed to be a part of a movement that was trying to make the law more inclusive for all women.
The Women in Lawyers Australia Network is the group that I joined to give my voice to the women of Australia and to make sure they had a voice in the debate.
Women in Law is an advocacy group that promotes and funds women in legal careers, and we are proud to be part of the Women’s Law Network.
WELC is a women-led organisation which works to promote women’s legal careers through the legal services sector.
WELC also promotes the role of women across the legal system through its WELNs and the Women Lawyers Network.
It is an outstanding organisation that brings together women lawyers in the wider law sector, and helps them to develop their skills and knowledge.
While I was in New Zealand and in Australia, my role as a lawyer as a full-time paid employee and also as a volunteer at the Women Legal Service Association was growing and growing.
I worked in the Legal Services Group as a partner and full-timer.
For the last five years I’ve worked full- time as an advocate at WELLSA, a women’s rights organisation, and WELNC, a men’s rights group.
We’ve had about 250 people who’ve joined the Women Law Network in the last four years, and they represent over 200,000 women in Australian law.
Being a full time lawyer is a very demanding profession and I’m very fortunate in that I’m able to be in that position for a number of reasons.
Firstly, being able to travel is an advantage for women lawyers who are on short notice.
I often work evenings and weekends, and as a result my travel costs have gone down significantly.
Secondly, it is an exciting career opportunity, particularly for a woman who is trying to get into the profession.
The Law Society of Victoria has an online program where we meet women lawyers and share tips and advice, and a number have made a significant contribution to the legal community.
Women in law also benefit from having a role model in the profession, whether that be a mentor or someone who has a direct line of communication with lawyers.
It allows women lawyers to see themselves reflected in the role they play, and to become part of an organisation whose aim is to promote equality in the professions.
Working as a Full-Time Attorney As a full service lawyer you will need to do some work in order to earn a living, and the legal and tax systems vary greatly.
I would estimate that about 75 per cent of your time as part of WELNS and WLNC is spent in the tax system.
