Organizer Minerva LAW Network

Organizer of Cornelia Weiss on Post-WWII Occupied Germany

The Minerva LAW (Legal and Academic Women's) Network speaks to those researchers who have legal training, are undertaking legal research, and are thinking of pursuing a career in law, broadly defined. The remit of the network includes the traditional professional model: entering the legal profession and becoming a fully qualified lawyer according to standards and training of the jurisdiction. Yet, there are other pathways too, including a career in a law faculty or school in a university setting. Employers outside of higher education also seek to recruit those with legal training. Government bodies and policy-makers rely on legal research; journalism, publishing and recruitment are also high profile alternative careers. There are also career paths in the supra- or international civil service or for a variety of non-governmental organisations. Minerva LAW Network will act as a focal point to discuss pertinent issues, such as how to gain entry level positions, strategies for career advancement and barriers to progression, as well as other matters relating to gender and the law.

Events are usually held on the last Friday of each month!

You can expect an informal atmosphere for listening, learning, and talking through professional challenges and opportunities. To encourage participation and to protect your privacy, we do not record any of these meetings.
