In more recent years, the institute has supported the policy and advocacy work, and training initiatives of my organisation. It's great to be a part of an institution that sees the importance, and supports in the push, to make the legal system gender equitable.

My LIV membership gives me access to information and resources to keep my knowledge current, and to opportunities to deepen my practice and networks through accredited specialisation and committee membership.

Getting involved with the LIV has led to some of my greatest career highlights.
