Women in Law Scotland, the new networking group that aims to improve the outlook for women in the legal profession, is looking for volunteers to make up its first committee.

Founded by three lawyers at CMS, Davinia Cowden, Iona Hunter and Emma Boffey, WiLS held its formal launch last month at an event attended by Christine McLintock, President of the Law Society of Scotland, and Lesley Thomson, Solicitor General for Scotland, among others.

WiLS is now looking for committed and enthusiastic individuals who would like to be part of the organisation. It emphasises that part of its ethos is that it should represent a variety of lawyers and paralegals, and types and size of firm, and also have as wide a geographical reach as possible.

Anyone interested in joining the WiLS committee, or who would like further information, should email admin@womeninlawscotland.com with a short description about themselves and their career and what, in their view, the network should be doing going forward.
