Event description
Join WWLA for a fabulous evening with the Chief Justice, the Right Honourable Dame Helen Winkelmann and Mary Scholtens QC.

About this Event

The Chief Justice began her legal career with Auckland firm Nicholson Gribbin (later Phillips Fox, now DLA Piper), becoming their first female partner in 1988 and one of the youngest ever in the firm’s then 117-year history. In 2001, she began practice as a barrister sole specialising in insolvency, commercial litigation and medical disciplinary litigation. A few years later, in 2004, she was appointed as a High Court Judge and later elevated to Chief High Court Judge. In 2015, she was appointed to the Court of Appeal and on 14 March 2019 she was sworn-in as the Chief Justice.

Mary Scholtens QC is an experienced Queen's Counsel who has acted predominantly in the commercial public law area since commencing practice in 1982. She spent ten years in the Crown Law Office before joining the independent bar in 1996. She was made a Queen's Counsel in 2002.

Please join us for a fascinating conversation between Mary Scholtens QC and the Chief Justice, followed by an opportunity for questions from the audience. We expect this event to sell-out, so please inform us ASAP if you have signed up and can no longer attend.

Thanks to Chapman Tripp for hosting this WWLA event.
