WILK are a non-profit organisation who empower, support and connect women who work, or aspire to work, in the legal profession.  For the sake of clarity, WILK is open to all, so long as your values align with ours. This includes our friends in the LGBTQ+ community. 

We achieve our mission by arranging and organising opportunities available to our members and the wider community, such as workshops, online courses, networking events and social activities. We are able to facilitate free events, accessible and available to everyone. We are lucky to be supported by local law firms and business, who contribute to the viability of these programs. Our aim is to provide a safe space for women in our profession to feel included, meet new people and develop, both personally and professionally. 

WILK was created in 2020 as we noticed a gap in our profession for a friendly, encouraging group for women. We launched in March 2020, just before the national COVID lockdown - it then became apparent that this group was needed more than ever. WILK is a Limited Company, run by Gemma Adams, Megan Leckie and Stefanie Smith; three women who are absolutely committed to the continued growth and empowerment of our community, through our collective, fostering a culture of togetherness and support.
