The highlight of the IWLA annual calendar is always the glittering IWLA Gala Dinner celebrating the Irish Woman Lawyer of the Year. This year we take the glitter online as we are very proud to present the IWLA Irish Woman of the Year Award 2020 jointly to the Chair of the Bar of Ireland, Maura McNally S.C., second female Chair of the Bar Council, and outgoing President of the Law Society of Ireland, Michele O’Boyle, the fourth female President of the Law Society. The event taking place on Wednesday 16 December 2020 from 7.30pm, will be presented by IWLA Irish Lawyer of the year 2019, Senator Ivana Bacik.

Our outstanding awardees have led the Irish legal professions with distinction in this challenging year, and we look forward to welcoming colleagues and friends to celebrate their achievements and contributions to the legal professions.
