Young Lawyers Committee
The Young Lawyers Committee of the Law Society of Tasmania is set up to assist and be a voice for younger members of the Tasmanian legal profession.
The Committee is made up of young practitioners from many firms and fields.
The Committee organises social events to encourage networking between young lawyers and senior practitioners, as well as “continuing legal education” (CLE) lectures throughout the year that are open to the profession at large to attend and learn from.
In 2010 the Committee commenced a mentoring program between its members and students from the Professional Legal Training Program. The program is aimed at getting students involved with the profession at an early stage and giving them a taste of what practice is like for young lawyers in their early years.
The Committee aims to be involved in the issues that affect the lives of young lawyers and welcomes comment to its president or secretary.
The Committee also encourages new members to be a part of our group.
We also invite sponsorship of our social events or involvement of senior practitioners or groups for our CLE lectures.
