Watts McCray’s Managing Director Jacqueline Vincent, a committee member of the Women Lawyers Association of NSW, presented a session on Family Violence alongside Janet Loughman, Principal Solicitor of Women’s Legal Services NSW and Rosslyn Chenoweth at the Australian Women Lawyers 7th National Conference in Sydney last weekend.

This year’s theme for the Conference was ‘Investing in the Future’ and as such the Conference on contemporary issues of innovation and technology and the law. The delegates discussed the use of technology as an essential tool for lawyers to promote diversification, inclusion, quality leadership, best practice, flexible work options, the achievement of policy and law reform, and access to justice.

Other speakers included NSW Attorney General Mark Speakman, Law Council of Australia Immediate Past President Fiona McLeod SC, Chair of the Equal Opportunity Committee Law Council of Australia Kate Eastman SC and Key Note speaker Professor Gillian Triggs, Past President of the Australian Human Rights Commission.

Ms Vincent said “A great AWL conference on the weekend – investing in the future.  Great to hear so many inspirational presentations from such amazing presenters right through to the finale on Innovation and Technology.”
