Invitation: Women in Law
11 August @ 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm
The Faculty of Law celebrates the role of women in the legal profession and in our society at large. In this regard, the Juridical Society (JV/S) and the Stellenbosch Women Alumnae Network (SWAN) extend an invitation to you to join the Women in Law event on 11 August in recognition of National Women’s Day to reflect and celebrate the journey of women in our profession.
Since 2014, the JV/S has hosted a number of esteemed speakers at this event and Prof Thuli Madonsela graced the inaugural Women’s Month Breakfast. SWAN was formed by the Development and Alumni Relations Division of Stellenbosch University (SU) in 2020 and aims to bring together women through mentorship programmes, leadership training, round-table discussions and many more to enable networking among diverse groups of women in a variety of industries.
This year the faculty is proud to host alumna Ms Ulrike Naumann as the 2021 guest speaker. Ms Naumann is a trailblazer in many respects and represents the great strides that so many of our alumnae have made and continue to make in our profession.
