#InPictures: Students and lawyers unite at QUB Women in Law networking event
A networking event hosted by QUB Women in Law brought together students starting their legal journey and women from various sectors of law to share their experiences and learn from each other.
Dame Siobhan Keegan delivered the keynote speech at last week’s event, sharing her journey to becoming the first Lady Chief Justice of Northern Ireland and offering tips on how to succeed in the legal profession.
Tamara Duncan, a member of the QUB Women in Law committee and organiser of the event, said: “I am thrilled to see so many women in the legal profession come together to network and learn from each other.
“Our goal was to create a space for women to share their experiences and challenges in the legal profession, and I am proud to say that we achieved that.”
The event also provided ample opportunity for attendees to network, who were able to meet and connect with other women in the legal profession, build relationships and share their experiences.
Aoife McColgan said: “As a young female solicitor, I find events like this incredibly helpful in navigating the legal profession. It’s always great to hear from other women who have gone through similar experiences and know that I’m not alone.”
QUB Women in Law, which was launched last year, plans to host more events in the future to continue to support and empower women in the legal profession.
