Eversheds Sutherland Ireland was delighted to support the annual IWLA “Women Celebrating Women Lawyers” Gala Dinner, which was held on 6 October 2018 in the Presidents' Hall, Law Society of Ireland.

Congratulations to Ms Justice Mary Ellen Ring, who was awarded the IWLA "Women Lawyer of the Year" award which was presented by Ms Justice Catherine McGuinness. Maura Butler was also presented with an award for her contribution to the IWLA committee by Noeline Blackwell.

On the evening, IWLA announced their refreshed vision and mission, with the aim of ensuring that the organization remains relevant and active:


To be, by 2021, the foremost public voice on behalf of women lawyers in Ireland, on topical areas of law relevant to women in Ireland.


To be an advocate both for women in law in Ireland and for changes to the law for women. IWLA strives to achieve this mission by:

   1. Speaking out publicly on behalf of our members and Irish women generally

   2. Providing a link between the media and our members to ensure female voices are heard in public discourse and

   3. Holding professional networking, social and educational events.

As a firm, Eversheds Sutherland looks forward to developing positive working links with IWLA, and with the Law Society and Bar Council, to continue to develop positive opportunities and to be a voice for women lawyers.
