Highlights: The Women in Law Awards 2016

Relive all the highlights from the fifth annual Lawyers Weekly Women in Law Awards, which celebrated the achievements of the best and the brightest Australian women in law.

Over 400 members of the legal profession gathered on 28 October at the Sofitel on Collins in Melbourne, walking the red carpet upon arrival (photos below and here).

Guests were entertained by comedian turned law student Corinne Grant as the 19 award winners took to the stage.

The big winner of the night was Claire Bibby from Brookfield, who first won the General Counsel of the Year award and went on to win the Women in Law Excellence Award for receiving the highest overall individual score.

Lawyers Weekly congratulates all the winners and looks forward to seeing what the women of the legal profession can achieve in the coming year.
