Who we are
AWS London is a vibrant, welcoming and inclusive community for women lawyers. A key theme is promoting a community of lawyers who are relaxed and open so that we can support each other in our careers.

AWSL has been established for many years and is well-recognised by all the major government and regulatory bodies. We liaise with the Solicitors’ Regulation Authority, the Judicial Appointments’ Commission, The Law Society and so on. We provide a completely independent voice.
