In an effort to engage and promote the next generation of female solicitors, five associates from London firms are setting up a grassroots women's legal network. The group, Women In Law London (WILL), is targeting female solicitors at the pre-partnership level from both private practice and in-house. Five London lawyers have worked on this project, including Sascha Grimm from Edwards Wildman Palmer, Suzanne Szczetnikowicz of Shearman & Sterling, Sophie Bragg of Mischon de Reya, Ellen Hges-Jones of Edwards Wildman Palmer and Fatema Orejla of Kirkland & Ellis. WILL's official launch will take place on 17 October. Source: The Lawyer
