Arwa al-Hujaili has become Saudi Arabia's first female legal trainee – or three years of apprenticeship ahead before she earns her full legal licensure to become a lawyer. Free Arabs has more here.
Pingback: Saudi Arabia’s First Female Lawyer? | OccuWorld
The first female legal trainee- just now?! Wow…but it is a step in the right direction. But I do have to wonder-what happens after she finishes her three years of apprenticeship? Will anyone actually seek her out and hire her? Or will she be considered less skilled than a male lawyer and pretty much be unemployable?
