WICL North West is looking forward to promoting and supporting women working within the criminal justice system.
Our membership spans solicitors, paralegals, barristers, barrister’s clerks and the judiciary, and includes those prosecuting and defending, as well as those privately and publicly funded. WICL North West reflects The Northern Circuit geography encompassing Liverpool, Cheshire, Manchester and Preston as well as Burnley in Lancashire and Carlisle in Cumbria.
We aim to provide information, encouragement and support to women in criminal law, helping develop connections to progress within their field of practice. Our aim is to break down barriers to success by providing appropriate support to women, including advice, mentoring and skills training.
