What we are looking for

We are looking for Expressions of Interest from women who would like to join the Centre’s Board at the upcoming AGM in November. We expect to have one vacancy in a seven-woman Board.

The Centre’s primary practice areas are family law and domestic violence and the Centre is committed to providing legal services in a multidisciplinary way that seeks to intervene early in matters and resolve the quickly.

We are looking specifically for women who are no longer practicing in the ACT and want to be part of shaping the ongoing evolution and growth of our practice to meet the need of women here in Canberra.
