OWLS was formed in 1986. Its objects include:

  • to work for the equal opportunity and advancement of women in the study and practice of law;
  • to work for reform of the law and its administration, and for the advancement of social policy, particularly as it affects women and children;
  • to promote the use of women’s skills in law.

We also celebrate and encourage women in the practice of law and hold regular social and educational events. We also provide a support network for women during their study and practice of law.

All women who are law students, law clerks, working as legal executives, who hold a degree in law and women who have been admitted to the Bar, are eligible to join.
