We call for your award nomination submissions. Nominate the most outstanding female legal professionals who deserve to be recognized for their achievements!

You can still get your early bird ticket for EUR 349 instead of EUR 399. Special reduced rates are available for legal professionals in training (e.g. associates), students, and our sponsors.

Stay tuned for more details on the program and speaker announcements coming up in the next weeks.


Supported by the University of Vienna Faculty of Law, we conduct a scientific survey on the situation of women in the legal professions. Have your say and take the survey to let us know your opinion on gender, diversity, the pay gap and how to fix our legal working culture. 

Hundreds of you have already answered our questions. We are pleased to see so many fascinating legal professionals from all over the world taking part in our joint cause!

Results will be presented and discussed at our conference in June.
