Summary

"A Woman's Place" celebrates for the first time the progress and achievement of Queensland women lawyers over the past 100 years. Published to coincide with the centenary of the enactment of the Legal Practitioners Act 1905, which first enabled women to join the practising legal profession in Queensland, "A Woman's Place" commemorates the stories of women who have forged new paths within the traditional, male legal establishment. Offering a unique mix of human interest, historical and reference material, "A Woman's Place" is an important record of Queensland's legal and social history. As a reference tool, the volume fills a void by consolidating a range of statistical data and information relating to women in the law in Queensland, whilst the illustrated profiles of some of Queensland's foremost women lawyers are both intimate and engaging.
