It's International Women’s Day on Friday 8 March 2019 and we're taking part in a UK-wide photography project and we need female solicitors, paralegals, trainees, law students and any woman working for a law firm or legal team to pop into our offices to have their photo taken.

 

Your photo will form part of a visual celebration of the First 100 Years project which celebrates women in law across the UK and marks 100 years since the Sex Disqualification (Removal) Act 1919 which paved the way for women to become lawyers for the first time.

 

Please be part of this historical project by dropping into our offices between 9.30 am and 4.30pm. There is no need to book a slot – just turn up!

 

We look forward to seeing as many women in the legal profession as possible on Friday 8 March 2019 at our offices Atria One, 144 Morrison Street, Edinburgh, EH3 8EX.
