Did you know 60% of law graduates are women but only 30% of partners in law firms are women. We think it is time to rebalance the books.

This meetup group is for both men and women, we believe empowering women in business should not be gender specific, the overall theme of the meetup group is to showcase, promote and inspire women in the new emerging law tech space.

This event will have networking drinks, speakers from women working in law tech startups and innovation roles in law firms. Hear from:

Clare Dundon, Strategic Innovation Manager at Hogan Lovells

Project Redefine is Hogan Lovells’ program of innovation and transformation. Clare works in a global team to develop the strategy and manage the implementation of a portfolio of projects.
Other speakers TBA.
