Semester Two

The annual Women in Law Breakfast is the centrepiece of the UNLSA Social Justice portfolio.  At this popular event, University of Newcastle students, staff and members of the local legal profession are invited to discuss and celebrate the role of women in law.


Want to gain an invaluable insight into the journey of various prominent women in law? Well this years Women in Law Breakfast is set to be our biggest one yet -with speakers from a variety of different legal backgrounds ready to discuss their challenges, achievements, laughs and struggles with you.

Not only will you have the chance to listen to some inspiring stories over an amazing breakfast, this year we are proud to be donating $1 to ever ticket sale to headspace Newcastle. This means that you can enjoy a morning with friends, receive motivating insights whilst you are contributing to a worthwhile cause.

Just because it is a ‘Women in Law Breakfast’ don’t think that all you gentlemen out there are not invited! Bring all your friends and enjoy the coffee and laughs.
