Northern Young Lawyers

The Northern Young Lawyers Committee (NYLC) is a committee of the Law Society of Tasmania that promotes the interests of early career members of the Tasmanian legal profession in the north of the state. The NYLC is comprised of early career lawyers, classified as persons with less than 5 years practical experience or under the age of 35.

Lawyers from local firms and government departments volunteer to be a part of the NYLC.

The NYLC meets to discuss issues relevant to early career practitioners and soon to be admitted practitioners / graduates. The NYLC liaises with the Law Society of Tasmania to develop initiatives that address these concerns.

The NYLC is involved in organising professional and social events for the local profession, including Continuing Professional Development (CPD) activities.

For more information, or to become involved with the NYLC, email the secretary at kate.hughes@legalaid.tas.gov.au or head to Northern Young Lawyers Committee on Facebook here.
