The Australian Women Lawyers Conference 2018 for female practitioners, leaders and senior professionals across the Australian legal sector was held in Sydney from 25-26 August 2018 at the Sofitel Wentworth.

The theme for the conference was ‘Investing in the Future’. This theme captured current issues of innovation and technology and the law, including the utilisation of innovation and technology as an essential tool for new and senior lawyers in the furthering of diversity and inclusion, quality leadership, best practice, flexible work options, the achievement of policy and law reform, and attainment of access to justice.
