What are the Women in Law Awards?

LexisNexis Middle East is thrilled to announce the Women in Law Awards 2024, a prestigious event celebrating women's achievements and innovations in legal practice, will take place on 4th March 2024 at TAJ Exotica Resort & Spa, The Palm, Dubai .

Over the past few years, the number of women in the Arab world's legal field has grown significantly, with a more than 50% increase in just ten years. This represents a remarkable evolution, yet the mass entry of women into the legal world has also raised important questions regarding equal opportunities, gender pay gaps, and flexible working conditions.

While law firms and companies have made strides towards gender equality, there is still a long way to go. The Women in Law Awards 2024 aims to recognise the contributions of exceptional women in the legal profession and the efforts of organisations that have worked towards promoting women and gender equality within their teams.

Join us in honouring the achievements of women in the GCC region and advocating for change in the legal industry.

Why the Women in Law Awards?

LexisNexis is proud to champion gender equality in the legal profession and celebrate the incredible achievements of women in law. We believe that diversity and inclusivity are vital to the success of any team, and the Women in Law Awards are our way of recognising this.

By showcasing the excellence and achievements of inspiring women in the legal field, we aim to inspire and motivate the next generation of women in law. Additionally, we honour innovative initiatives that promote gender equality and highlight the impact of gender diversity on the success of law firms and companies.

Join us in celebrating the contributions of women in the GCC region and promoting gender equality in the legal profession.
