The aims and objectives of the Cambridge Women in Law (CWIL) network are as follows:

  • To celebrate the outstanding contribution that Cambridge law alumnae have made to legal practice, academia and to many aspects of public service.
  • To develop the role of the Cambridge Law Faculty as a common link that unites generations of women lawyers and its potential as a catalyst for further career and personal development.
  • To facilitate the creation of a network of Cambridge women lawyers and promote events ranging from speaker series, lectures and seminars to social events engaging both current postgraduate and undergraduate law students and alumni so that new channels of support and intellectual endeavour are opened and maintained.
  • To promote the crucial role that Cambridge law alumnae play in inspiring and supporting younger generations of women lawyers and to provide a strong platform for interaction between them.
  • To enhance the collaboration between the Faculty and Cambridge law alumnae in the achievement of Faculty priorities such as widening access and participation and student support.
