May

Emer O’Callaghan has been appointed as Mentor to the Law and Women Pilot Mentoring Programme, a joint initiative of the Law Society of Ireland and the Bar Council of Ireland in collaboration with the Irish Women Lawyers Association.

Encompassing solicitors, barristers and staff of both the Law Society and the Bar, Law and Women will support women lawyers and promote equality. The pilot mentoring programme beginning this year aims to improve diversity at all levels of the profession and address pay inequality between men and women. Mentors will commit to supporting mentees to develop their strengths and potential, find solutions to professional challenges and to promote professional development and career progression.
