Australian Women Lawyers Oral History Project

A project exploring the professional authority and public influence of women lawyers is on the agenda for the upcoming Australian Women Lawyers (AWL) conference.  The Trailblazing Women and the Law project is being carried out by an interdisciplinary academic team in partnership with AWL, the National Library of Australia, the National Foundation for Australian Women and the Federal and Family Courts of Australia.  It has been running as a pilot project for the last 18 months but has just secured funding through the Australian Research Council’s linkage grants system.  For full story click here.
