AWL X'mas Networking Session (15.12.2011)

AWL celebrates the end of a good year at "Chef & Brew", Damansara Heights.

  It's been an interesting year, a baptism of fire for me in terms of being exposed to legal activism from the feminist perspective.

After joining AWL, I frankly say that it has enriched my life. I have met many women lawyers including those who are no longer members of the Bar having ventured into other professions. These women are willing to support the association and its members with many stories and experiences to share.

AWL can be a rich source of female mentors for young aspiring lawyers and if all of us play a part in increasing the membership numbers, we can indeed become a formidable organisation, to serve as a support group for one another and also, to increase our talent base for legal activism.

Anyway, I digress. Back to the party:

Good company, good food followed by a game of charades.

  Here is Kiran trying to act out her first word, the game had many of us in stitches with some outlandish acting coupled by bizzare guesses. Those who were there know what I am talking about!

The evening ended with a Secret Santa present exchange with a twist. All subsequent allottees of presents are given the option of "stealing" away a previous allottee's present if they fancied it.

On this high note, I would like on behalf of the AWL Exco, to wish all our members "Merry Christmas" and a "Happy New Year!"

May 2012 be even better!
