Women Who Will
Class of 2023

Let’s celebrate the visionaries:

the next generation of female leaders

in law who are breaking down barriers

and challenging stereotypes.

Women Who Will Class of 2023

Our 2023 Women Who Will report honours the talented and inspiring women who are future leaders in law and who are helping to create a legal profession that’s free from bias and discrimination.

As we build on a century of progress, with 2022 being the centenary of women playing an active role in law, it’s more important than ever to look ahead and celebrate those who are continuing to break down barriers, challenge outdated stereotypes, and hold open the door for others to follow.

For our Class of 2023, we shine a light on the women who demonstrate exceptional leadership and innovative thinking, whether it’s in a formal leadership role or through their wider community involvement. They’re trailblazers when it comes to diversity, champions of new technology, or doing things differently and innovatively when it comes to delivering legal work.

Our Women Who Will report is published in partnership with the Next 100 Years Project, which aims to foster collaboration across the legal profession and provide support, encouragement and advancement opportunities to women, so that they can thrive and succeed in the law going forward.

“It is so important that we do give a voice to those women who are often overlooked or underestimated.  Those who work quietly and conscientiously in the background, who have shown strength, tenacity and courage often in the face of hardship and adversity, and who have succeeded against all the odds.”
Lubna Shuja

Immediate Past President of the Law Society of England and Wales (2022/23)
