Supporting Women's Legal Mentorship
When we started thinking about Lady Justice Apparel™ and what type of microbusiness we wanted to be, we knew womxn supporting womxn was a keystone in our foundation. It’s not just enough to create original Canadian designs for legal minded people.
So, we decided to support the Women’s Legal Mentorship Program (WLMP). Like us, the WLMP is one-of-a-kind. They have created a unique legal mentorship grounded in feminist and intersectional principles.
The WLMP pilot program that ran from 2011 to 2020 at the University of Ottawa, Faculty of Law helped over 1,600 self-identifying womxn law students and lawyers connect through mentorship.
Their forthcoming national student program and mentoring program is very exciting. It’s the kind of groundbreaking initiatives we support.
How Lady Justice Apparel™ is Collaborating with the WLMP
Lady Justice Apparel™ works hard to keep the cost of our apparel reasonable, while still paying our designers and suppliers fair wages. Plus, using only materials that meet ethical WRAP standards and local businesses. But that doesn’t mean all Canadian law students can afford a Lady Justice Apparel™ design.
That’s why we’re collaborating with the Women’s Legal Mentorship Program to offer WLMP members a special discount to thank them for their commitment to feminist mentorship.
- If you are a member of the WLMP, then you will receive an email with details on how to take in the Lady Justice Apparel™ WLMP collaboration.
- Not a member of the WLMP but are self-identifying female law student or lawyer in Canada? Head on over to their website and sign up. WLMP membership is free!
We also plan to develop a line of legal mentoring apparel to help legal mentorship programs, like the WLMP, among others.
Continuing to Give Back.
Our collaborations with women’s legal organizations and legal student groups in Canada is separate from our goal to give back.
From every purchase of a Lady Justice Apparel™ item from our collection or limited editions, a portion of the sale is donated to a legal clinic, organization or legal initiative advancing the rights of self-identifying womxn, girls and equity seeking groups in Canada.
