Women in Law Awards – Call for Nominations


The Ministry of Law and Justice (MOL&J), Group Development Pakistan (GDP), and Women in Law Initiative Pakistan invite applications for the first ‘Women in Law Awards’ held with support from the Australian High Commission (Main Sponsor) and the British High Commission (Co-Sponsors). The Awards aim to recognize and reward female lawyers, in-house practitioners, academics, and law students from Pakistan and recognize the contributions of select entities towards an inclusive and equal legal profession.

Candidates may nominate themselves or be nominated by another person, entity, colleague, or employer by submitting the ‘Nomination Form’ attached below and submitting other relevant and requisite supporting material as prescribed in the nomination form no later than Thursday, 15th October 2020.

To submit: email the scanned documents and nomination form to submissions@gdpakistan.org

For queries, please contact: submissions@gdpakistan.org

A candidate may apply for up to THREE categories at a time. The awards are divided into two main classifications, and each type has its categories:

a. Individual

The individual category awards are reserved for female lawyers, unless otherwise explicitly stated. The individual awards aim to address the gender parity in the profession and to highlight and celebrate the work of female lawyers except for the ‘male gender and diversity champion’ award, which rewards the contribution of a male lawyer(s) towards an inclusive and accessible legal profession.

b. Entity

The awards for the entities, on the other hand, will reward the contribution made by the entities towards diversity and inclusion of all marginalized classes, including women, minorities, and the differently-abled. They will be assessed on the basis of their role and contribution towards ensuring a more accessible, conducive, and inclusive legal profession.
