DWL Advocacy Program 2021
- Tue 2nd Mar 2021, 1:00 PM - 1:00 PM
- 161 Castlereagh St, Sydney NSW 2000
**PROGRAM UPDATE - POSTPONED**
Due to the evolving COVID situation, the DWL Advocacy Program will be postponed to a later date in the year. This is due to the difficulties with hosting in-person events and the need to prioritise our health and safety during these challenging times.
With this postponement, competition registration dates will now be extended until 31 July. If you have already applied for a competition, DWL has saved your response and will contact applicants for further details and extend you opportunity to submit an updated application. Registration will re-open on Saturday 27 June and close at midnight on Friday 31 July.
The good news is that students can now participate in more than one event if they are successful. DWL also has the flexibility to select more competitors with the deferred competition allowing for additional rounds to take place. There is a light at the end of the tunnel!
We are hopeful that the competition will proceed before the end of the year and will provide timely updates as soon as they are available.
Thank you all for your patience and understanding! We are very excited about this program and thank you for your continued support.
DWL is proud to announce the launch of its inaugural Advocacy Program proudly sponsored by Herbert Smith Freehills.
DWL’s Advocacy Program is the first intervarsity Moot and Witness Examination Competition that caters solely to diverse women studying law in NSW. The three-fold initiative comprises the Civil Law Moot, Skills Workshop, and Witness Examination Criminal Law Competition.
Diverse Women studying law in NSW are strongly encouraged to apply for this program. Participants will be selected based on their motivation and expressed desire to develop advocacy skills. Preference will be given to applicants at the later stages of their law degree. Previous competition experience and academic marks are not relevant to the selection criteria.
NOTE: Diverse Women in Law (DWL) reserves the right to change the dates, format and structure of the Program based on the pandemic and evolution of the situation including the need to maintain social distancing measures. All participants will be informed as soon as possible in the event of any changes.
Stay tuned for details about event structure, registration process and participants!
