Occupations

This online exhibition illustrates that a law degree is a doorway to many occupations.

You can read about those women who have used their law degrees and life experiences to become academics, advocates, advisors, authors, barristers, community activists, government lawyers, in-house counsel, international legal advocates, journalists, judges, jurists, magistrates, parliamentary drafters, policy makers, politicians, solicitors, and tribunal members .

Two of them have particular trailblazing insignia – Governor-General and Prime Minister.
