Dear Members & Colleagues

We are delighted and honoured that Prof Croucher is making a special trip to Newcastle as our guest speaker at this luncheon. 

A long-time member and supporter of the Women Lawyers Association of NSW, we have been fortunate to have Prof Croucher as guest speaker at some of our Sydney events in the past, and she is a most engaging, articulate and entertaining speaker who delivers informative and thought-provoking presentations.

Please join us to hear from one of the highly regarded leaders in the legal sector, and the opportunity to catch up with colleagues and meet new contacts.
Please RSVP by COB Friday 29th July to ensure your seat.  We look forward to seeing you then!
Kind regards,
WLANSW Newcastle Chapter in association with the Newcastle Law Society.
