It is a fact that in Spain, as in many other countries, the legal sector is dominated by a male leadership model. Even in the 21st century, the legal industry, is still configured based in the preferences of the men who exercised the legal profession long ago, a time when women had virtually no chance to study or practice it, let alone, being able to take part in the creation of the most fitting professional model for all.
Fortunately, society has changed radically ever since. Women not only have equal access to college, but they also choose to study Law at a significantly higher rate than men and also have a better academic perfomance.
Nonetheless, some really interesting factors, lead women to generally take a secondary role when they reach the highest levels of power , management responsibilities and wages in most law firms and other legal organizations, as schools, boards, association, companies, agencies, business school, law schools, etc.
WLW has been created to contribute to the transformation of these structures, that have certainly ceased to meet the needs and preferences of most people who dedicate their knowledge, experience and talent to the law world (women), while systematically keeping better paid, more relevant , and more accountable positions, only available for men..
Women in a Legal World strives to create a collaborative network that increases the presence of women in media management, committees, institutions, boards, university, offices, companies and associations in the legal sector.
