Connecting Lawyer Mums presently has
over 650 members based Australia-wide

Our members include women from a variety of legal practices and roles including criminal, employment and family lawyers, judges, magistrates, mediators and legal lecturers. Our members are enjoying the benefits of developing relationships with incredible, like-minded women throughout Australia.

Lauren created Connecting Lawyer Mums in response to her own experiences as a criminal lawyer mum and after hearing stories of other mothers juggling parenting and life as a lawyer and women’s careers being interrupted because they exercised their rights to start a family, take maternity leave and/or work part-time or flexibly. Lauren wanted to create a group that offered lawyer mothers practical and emotional support to preserve and bolster their careers and overall happiness.

About Lc

As a mum you can sometimes doubt yourself and your skills as a mother and as a lawyer, so it’s important to be able to share your experiences with others in the same situation and to support and empower each other. There are stresses unique to working in a profession that often involves traumatic and challenging matters. It can affect you emotionally. So it’s great to be able to share that experience as well. You are not alone.
