Expired Family, Women and the Law Webinar Series | Women Lawyers – Female Leadership | 19 May 2020




Families and women are at the heart of our society and hold great importance. LexisNexis will therefore be bringing you a webinar series to celebrate their role in society.

Through this series of webinars, you’ll be given the opportunity to have a look at the challenges being faced, in today’s socio-economic world, especially with the health and economic crisis of COVID-19. It will also allow you to receive strategic advice on how to develop and improve your leadership approach during this unique situation and following this crisis.

This series is aimed at all women, lawyers or not, mothers or not, working or housewives but also to men interested in Family Law developments and engaging in women’s leadership advancement.



With the steady rise in female lawyers fulfilling leadership roles, it only seems fitting to embrace this opportunity and explore this increase and provide guidance to current and future female leaders. Join LexisNexis and changeosity on 19 May 2020 from 11AM to 12PM for a webinar where Kiran will discuss her views on:

  • The leadership behaviours required to lead through change in the 21st century;
  • Why these leadership behaviours lend themselves to female leadership; and
  • 5 Top Tips to ensure you exhibit the leadership traits required to deliver success in these challenging and disruptive times.
