The eighth annual Women in Law Awards, held at the Grand Hyatt in Melbourne on Friday 22 November 2019, brought together over 700 legal professionals to recognise and celebrate the outstanding women shaping and influencing the legal industry. Representing law across private practice, academia, sole practitioners and pro bono, this successful event has grown annually with this year being the largest to date.
We were delighted to present four (of the 30) awards on the night for Innovator of the Year, Senior Associate of the Year – SME, Rising Star of the Year – Big Law and Thought leader of the Year and wish to congratulate Caryn Sandler of Gilbert + Tobin, Crystal Ray of Construct Law Group, Marina Kofman of Norton Rose Fulbright and Rose Cocchiaro of Resolve Divorce as the respective winners.
We are also very pleased to acknowledge the achievement of Kate Godhard, Augusta investment manager, as a worthy finalist for In-house Lawyer of the Year. Congratulations to all winners and finalists – we look forward to seeing you there next year.
