Oral history project on the first women barristers - help wanted

Thu May 27 2010

The Women Barrister’s Forum, a section of the NSW Bar Association, is undertaking a project to document the history of the first 27 women barristers admitted in NSW. A 15 minute multimedia slideshow presentation will be permanently available, when complete, as a link on the Bar Association website. The interviews conducted as part of the project will be retained in the Bar Library, for any further study. Ms Juliette Brodsky, who has prepared a similar presentation for the Victorian Bar website, will be undertaking interviews in Sydney on 26 June – 4 July 2010. If you have information, newsclips, photos, anecdotes or information about any of the women barristers on the attached list, please let Juliette Brodsky know as soon as possible. If there is anyone you believe should be included in the list but who is not presently listed, please also advise. The WBF does not have contact details for the following women barristers: Mary H E Appleby, Ann� Bernard and Mary Cass. If you have any information about how to contact them or information about their practice at the bar, please contact the WBF. 27 May 2010
