A statement of support by Dr Susanne Raab
“Why do I support Women in Law and why is it so important that women in legal professions are being empowered?” Statement for the Women in Law Conference, Vienna 2020
In Austria the amount of non-financial reports is growing as a result of the implemented EU directive. However, the unfortunate truth is that only a few companies offer a detailed description of their diversity concept in their corporate governance reports.
From March 1-3, Vienna held its first international Women in Law Conference – the first convention of this kind in Central Europe. It focused on a diagnosis of the situation of women in the legal professions and on together developing ways to accelerate progress in this area.
In 1919 the first woman was admitted to study law at the University of Vienna - a milestone in the history of women in law. Today, 100 years later, women are represented in all legal fields – but they are still facing challenges in their work life. So let’s take a closer look at the history of women in law in Austria.
