Gender almost balanced for Victorian Lawyers

27 March 2018 11:06 AM | Anonymous

The lawyer statistics, as published by the Victorian Legal Services Board as at 28 February, shows that the gender balance of lawyers in Victoria now shows (for the first time in history), a gender balance in favour of women. While the difference is slight (38 female lawyers), Lawyers weekly report that this gradual shift of demographics has occurred over the past decade or so, with the gender 'balancing' of women growing by 3% annual, double the rates of males. The trend is being observed nationally, however the NSW Law Society still notes that firms need to increase their efforts to ensure that women are more prominent in leadership positions.
