Women in Law 2020/2021

Women in Law strives for inclusivity and wants to open previously closed doors for women. And that is what we are going to do with the Justitia Awards Ceremony too!

We have been anxiously monitoring the latest COVID-19 developments on a national and global scale and, therefore, have decided to switch to an online-only format for our Justitia Awards Ceremony on November 19, 2020. But travel restrictions hinder our international nominees, sponsors, and guests from joining us in Vienna, where safety measures at the Palace of Justice would force us to limit our guest list significantly. Such an exclusive setting would go against everything we stand for.

‘We look forward to seeing all of you, in the meantime, stay home and stay safe. Together we can master the current situation!’

The next conference will take place in September 2021. We are also hosting the Justitia Awards in November 2020 online. For updates, please follow our newsletter:
