The Women in Business Law Awards announces the launch of its inaugural Global Advisory Panel

It is with great pleasure that the Women in Business Law Awards announces the first annual Global Advisory Panel. 

The panel has been assembled to ensure that the awards reflects the latest developments and most pressing issues for the promotion of women in the practice of law.  



It has reviewed and made recommendations for the awards methodology, categories, and ideals that would best reflect the views and concerns of women in the practice of law. 

The panel has also provided advice on the most critical challenges facing women in the legal industry. 



We are excited to introduce the members of our inaugural panel: Fiona Nott and Sally Hall.
