The WLAQ’s Ladder Program supports and nurtures women in the early stages of their legal careers through its Ladder mentoring program. The program matches law students and lawyers (must be less than 5 PAE) with more experienced women in the profession who can encourage, assist and empower young women to take advantage of opportunities in the law. The ladder program helps develop professional contacts as well as assists women in taking responsibility for their learning and career direction.

The ladder program has enjoyed many years of success and continues to attract impressive mentors (including senior members of the Profession and members of the judiciary) as well as many promising and enthusiastic ‘mentees’. The program runs annually, with the launch in held each April to coincide with our Una Prentice Awards.
