Young Lawyers Committee

Welcome to the Young Lawyers Committees

The Young Lawyers Committees (YLCs) of the Law Society of Tasmania are set up to assist and be a voice for early career lawyers in the Tasmanian legal profession.

Each regional committee is made up of early career practitioners from many firms and fields.

YLC Role

Each regional committee organises social events to encourage networking between early career lawyers and senior practitioners, as well as continuing professional development (CPD) events throughout the year that are open to the profession at large to attend and learn from. This is the Young Lawyer CPD Lecture Series, which is coordinated by each regional YLC.

The committees aim to be involved in the issues that affect the lives of early career lawyers across Tasmania, and welcomes comment to its president or secretary.

How You Can Get Involved

The committees encourage new members to be a part of their groups – you will find YLC regional contact details by clicking the respective links below.

Sponsorship is welcomed. The committees invite sponsorship of their social events and/or involvement of senior practitioners and other interested groups for their CPD events.
