Comparative Study: Lived Experiences of Female Lawyers in the UK and Poland

Discipline/professional area
Law

Outline of research project

I am currently researching the legal field looking at the barriers women lawyers experience during their career progression. In particular, I am looking at the impact of and to what extent mentoring and coaching programmes are available to women lawyers. I would hope that my completed research will then illustrate the barriers that women lawyers face and how the mentoring and coaching programmes could improve their position of progression to the highest levels.
