The Woman Lawyer is essential reading for everyone contemplating a law degree, all law students, legal academics, women lawyers, policy makers in the law and anyone seeking to explore equality and fairness in our society.

This eye-opening book provides a fascinating study of the status and experiences of women in the law, and is unique in its analysis of developments from the law school to the judiciary. It also advocates the need for fundamental reforms in law schools and legal practice and canvasses many options.

Combining detailed empirical evidence, including material specifically gathered for the book, with information and advice, The Woman Lawyer seeks to raise the level of public debate on these issues. In addition, the book aims to inform, encourage, inspire and empower women studying and working in the law.

The text is also enriched by the personal testimonies of many women judges, QCs, barristers, solicitors, academics and students.
