About the session: 
In 2016 the Law Society of South Australia adopted the Law Council’s Equitable Briefing Policy to brief women in at least 30 per cent of all matters and receive at least 30 per cent of the value of all brief fees by 2020.

The aim of this policy, through short term and long term targets, is to create cultural change within the profession by addressing the significant gender pay gap, the underrepresentation of women in higher courts, and generally the improvement and retention of careers for women at the bar.

Join us for a panel discussion on how the Equitable Briefing Policy has been tracking towards reaching its objectives, the benefits of the Policy and how firms can build equitable briefing into their own practices.

This session will involve a panel discussion including Judge Penelope Kari of the Federal Circuit and Family Court of South Australia, Franco Camatta, the Director of Camatta Lempens who has signed up to the Policy, Leah Marrone of Australian Women Lawyers.

Members are strongly encouraged to attend and hear how they can build equitable briefing into their own practices.
