WOLELA is a national network of women lawyers committed to their personal and professional development. We have chapters in Johannesburg and Cape Town (Durban to follow) who meet quarterly at PPD Sessions (Personal & Professional Development). Our mission is simple: we want to help more women THRIVE in the law so they that they can contribute to the emergence of a healthier legal system.
“WILL IT BE SIMPLY THAT MORE LAWYERS ARE WOMEN, OR WILL THE LEGAL PROFESSION BE TRANSFORMED BY THE WOMEN WHO PRACTISE LAW?”
