The Women Law Students Forum

The WLSF was launched in November 2011 by Dr Rachel Fenton to promote the development of a vibrant student body, alert to important issues of equality, diversity and inclusivity in the Law School, the broader community and society as a whole.

The WLSF is affiliated to the Family, Gender and Equality Research Unit at Bristol Law School, UWE.

WLSF aims

The aims of the WLSF are to:

  • develop a student-led forum which provides a platform for debate and discourse around important contemporary issues affecting women.  
  • be a space to develop and support the aspirations of female law students and, consequently, their employability, both during and beyond their university studies.
