The WLAQ Management Committee has the option of appointing an advocate member. The criteria for a person being appointed an advocate membership is flexible and not dependent on any one set of terms. There is no requirement for the person to be female, or admitted as a lawyer. However, the recipient of a advocate membership must have contributed significantly to the advancement of women in the legal profession.
Any person in Queensland’s legal profession may make a recommendation to WLAQ’s Management Committee for consideration of a female as an honorary member. All enquiries regarding Advocate Membership are to be made to the President by email at email@example.com.
On 27 October 2018, WLAQ conferred its inaugural Advocate Membership to his Honour Judge Marshall Irwin for his longstanding support and ongoing contribution to WLAQ and its efforts.
