Wahine Week

06 September 2017

A week to celebrate women in Law.

Ursula Cheer, Dean of Law, sends her congratulations to the clubs who organised the very successful events for the inaugural Wahine Week: A week to celebrate women in Law.

Te Putairiki, UC Pasifika Law Students Society, UC Women in Law, Law for Change and CRIMSOC hosted speakers and seminars to celebrate the achievements of women in the law, both past and present. The aim was to inspire and educate our women undergraduates to foster connections with women currently working in the profession.

The final event was a panel organised by CRIMSOC including UC lecturer Cindy Zeiher speaking about women offenders, and NZ Police Inspector Tony Hill, Senior Sergeant Vicki Walker, Sergeant Andrea Williams, and Leanne McSkimming (Non-Sworn) who works on the ISRP for family harm. All donations go to Aviva Family Help Services. Well done everyone!
