Nau mai haere mai and welcome to the Wellington Women Lawyers’ Association.


We have been providing a platform and voice for women barristers, solicitors, in-house counsel, judges, law students and other women working in the legal profession since 1987.


WWLA is an active part of the legal community in Wellington, hosting regular social functions, professional panels and discussion groups as well as making submissions to Parliament on issues affecting women. WWLA runs a scholarship fund for female law students and a mentoring programme for female lawyers in the early stages of their legal careers.


Joining WWLA is a way to gain support, education and inspiration from women from all facets of the legal profession and we encourage and welcome you to join now to access the benefits of being part of the WWLA community. Please see our membership page to join.
