The content of our events programme is two-fold: 

1. putting on our own events for members, and 

2. facilitating cross-profession attendance at events across the criminal justice system. 


We hope that being part of Women in Criminal Law will allow you to attend events across the sector, to promote a breadth of communication, to foster new relationships and to see more of the profession. Through our broad network and membership, we hope to be able to invite you to events that you may not normally access.

To that end, in our programme of events, you will see direct booking for WICL events and links to external events you might consider attending with other WICL members.

Events Update

Our events page is looking a little empty at the moment - as most of our physical diaries are.  We've removed all of our events whilst we remain in lockdown and so we're not sad about things we might be missing - however we will be updating this page instead with online events or seminars that we hear of so that you can continue to join in virtually! 

Don't forget that WICL are hosting an online Corona initiative, so you check out our online platforms either for Mental Mondays or Wellness Wednesdays.

WICL's Virtual Pupillage Night

Thursday 3rd December 2020 at 6:15pm via Zoom. 

The main aim of the event is to provide prospective pupillage applicants with an opportunity to speak to practitioners and to gain advice from those who have already gone through the process. 


This year the pupillage event will also showcase alternative options to the bar. 


The event will be limited to 50 spaces and only open to members of WICL. Therefore if you would like to attend please email confirming your interest and providing a short bio about your journey to the bar, the stage you are currently at and which sets you are applying to. 

If you are not currently a member of WICL, please visit our membership page for details.


Zoom details will be provided at a later date. We look forward to seeing you all then!
