The Law Council is committed to taking measures that ensure a level playing field for all members of the Australian legal profession. A major step towards this goal is the development of an Equitable Briefing Policy, which briefing entities now have the opportunity to adopt.
The Policy includes interim and long term targets with the ultimate aim of briefing women in at least 30 per cent of all matters and paying 30 per cent of the value of all brief fees by 2020.
To read more about the policy and to see its annual report for the 2016-2017 financial year please click here.
