First 100 Years Project - Invitation to Women Solicitors


Women solicitors are asked to consider an invitation from the First 100 Years Project which is a national campaign celebrating the centenary of the Sex Disqualification Removal Act 1919, which allowed women to enter the legal profession (and professions more generally) this year.

The First 100 Years Project have been recording biographical films of pioneering women and have an exhibition touring the country that follows a timeline and a podcast series, among other projects.

As part of their celebrations this year, First 100 Years Project are working towards photographing the face of women in the law today.

They are inviting as many women in the law in Northern Ireland to be part of the new national campaign.

They will be at:

LOCATION - Lecture Theatre (4th Floor), Law Society House, Belfast

DATE          - Friday 8th March

TIME          - 9.30am - 4.30pm

The photographer will be taking headshots of any woman who works in the legal profession in any capacity, to add to our historical archive and to feature on our Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. Contributors can also use their headshots for their own LinkedIn.

No pre-registration/appointment required, just come along to the Law Society House on Friday 8th March 2019 at a time convenient for you. You must sign in at the security desk.
