WOMEN’S CAREER NETWORK (WCN)
The Women’s Career Network (WCN) is a network for women that combines passion and hard work and consists of female law and economics students and aims to coach young female talent, in student life and the transition to professional life.
By bringing together women who share WCN’s values, they want to inspire and motivate more women to challenge society’s gender norms and contribute to a higher percentage of women in leadership positions.
Katarina Ladenfors, lawyer and partner is engaged during the year as a mentor in the network. The mentorship includes coaching a student for 10 months.

MARLAW SUPPORTING RELIEF ORGANIZATION HELP NEEDED
We are very proud that our former colleague Mireille Wildh has made a great effort for refugees on Lesbos. Read her story about her work.
“3-7 December, I went with MarLaws support to Lesbos with the helping organisation Help Needed. I and my team met people at the beach that had made the perilous journey across the Mediterranean in a rubber boat. With every boat came between 10-20 children. The youngest child I met was only four days old.
I have warmed more icy and wet children’s feet than I can count, and wrapped in blankets shaking small children bodies. I have also sen the scared children’s faces light up with a smile at the sight of a piece of chocolate or a balloon and I have met with grateful glances and gestures of adults with a “thank you”. Gaining the trust of a child’s parents to raise their children from a potential death trap, carry ashore, console, keep and change clothes at is incredibly large.
What is happening in Europe right now means we all have to help out and do that little bit extra. I am proud to work for an agency that helps to spread love and compassion. I am proud that MarLaw has provided food packages to families in place and also to make Fadis, “Fadi the Syrian” which he wrote when he laid out his number in my phone, and his family continued travel through Europe easier. Nobody can do everything but everyone can do something.”
The law firm MarLaw is clearly distancing itself from violence and drugs and is committed to helping young people who have been misled by society. Therefore, the Law Firm does not support the Jiddra Foundation. The foundation is particularly focused on working with projects that relate to helping young people away from violence and drugs. “The Jiddra Not Foundation is a fundraising foundation that raises money to support and inspire young people through free inspirational camps and mentoring. We primarily target young people from vulnerable environments who are at risk of ending up in destructive living patterns. We work for increased well-being and for the positive as creativity, inspiration, conflict resolution and personal development! ” Read more here
