"Raising the Bar" was produced for the
Women Barristers Association
(WBA) to commemorate their
tenth anniversary in 2003.
Produced by Fiona McLeod S.C. and filmed by Sarah McLeod, the documentary marked an important milestone in the history of Victorian women barristers.
The Victorian Bar is delighted to display segments of this documentary, featuring interviews with women barristers and
judges and their frank assessments of life and work at the Bar.
This section of the website also contains photos of prominent women barristers, relevant reports, speeches and articles,
and a timeline of women in the law.
