Project Sponsor


The generous support of project sponsor the Law Institute of Victoria and the sponsor firms above allows VWL to provide a diverse and engaging annual program of events, contribute to policy reform initiatives, and meaningfully pursue its central mission of protecting women's rights.

Those interested in sponsoring VWL, or its projects or events, should contact our Sponsorship Officer.

VWL members within our sponsor firms support us through active participation in the VWL community - attending events, joining committees and working groups, contributing to publications and submissions, and adding their voice to the conversation.

VWL likes to highlight the work of these women lawyers, and to share their thoughts with our members. Each month we profile one of these women on this page.
