There are a couple of useful webinars I’ve come across recently: the Junior Lawyers Division of the Law Society put out a very interesting panel discussion around Women, Feminism and the Law towards the end of last year. Participants included Lady Hale of the Supreme Court, Vera Baird QC and Harriet Wistrich of Birnberg Peirce solicitors. Elizabeth Forrester, legal officer at the Free Representation Unit chairs discussions about the importance of bringing feminism into your work whatever your role.
Subject of earlier webinars include alternative careers and pro bono.
Another one worth a look is the International Bar Association video interview regarding their recent work on social networking and the legal profession. The project around social networking looked to establish the concerns around this and whether the IBA needed to work with bar associations, councils and societies worldwide to establish global guidelines.
The video involves an interview with Anurag Bana (IBA) and media lawyer Mark Stephens CBE. You can download the February report and learn about its findings.
