  • The Golden Gavel Competition

    The Golden Gavel is a national public speaking competition endorsed by the Law Council of Australia. It sees the best and brightest young lawyers in each State and Territory represent their firm and association before an audience of legal professionals from around Australia.

    Each State holds their own competition to determine finalists to compete in the national competition. The Victorian event has been held continuously since 2009 and is open to 10 competitors (one per law firm). The event comprises a panel of three adjudicators who will critique each presentation (the LIV President, a member of the judiciary, and a high-profile media guest). Competitors each receive a humorous topic with only 24-hours to prepare a 5-minute presentation to the audience.
