Cool Legal Spaces and Places
Cool Legal Spaces and Places

 YL 18 Nov 2015

I recently visited a number of legal innovators in the US. One of the things that struck me was that the interesting people I met all worked in interesting spaces. It reminded me of the importance of place. The way places are designed and work says something about a group's culture and values, and provides a sense of belonging.

The changing face of the legal profession
The changing face of the legal profession

Sony stopped making Betamax video tapes this week. Until I heard the news, I hadn't realised that Sony still made them, some three decades after VHS won the video wars of the 1980s. But it turns out that some people continued to use Betamax up until 13 years ago when Sony stopped making the recorders and then this week when they stopped making the cassettes.

Make the most of your summer lunch break

 YL 06 Oct 2015

One and all rejoice in the sunshine that is currently bathing our state. While the current warm weather will not be around for much longer, it has dawned on us at the YLS that summer will soon be upon us.

After all, studies have proven that taking a break can help productivity and an extra dose of vitamin D can’t hurt. So here is the YLS’s guide to your working week lunch hour.

Why young lawyers should head to the burbs
Why young lawyers should head to the burbs

 YL 14 Sep 2015

An interview with Joseph Romeo of DeMarco Lawyers.

Fifteen minutes after first walking through the door to start a new job with a small firm in Melbourne’s northern suburbs, Joseph Romeo was handed a file and told to head to the County Court for a jury empanelment. He spent the following nine weeks at the Court instructing two barristers. The experience was at once daunting and exhilarating. It was also one of the experiences that inspired Joseph’s passionate advocacy for the benefits of suburban legal practice.

A guide to informal mentoring
A guide to informal mentoring

 YL 18 Aug 2015

Mentoring is a key element for professional development and career progression within the legal profession.

You probably already have a raft of informal mentors who provide you with guidance on a variety of legal and career-related questions. This network has probably spontaneously developed over time without you even realising it. Developing relationships within the profession gives you the benefit of a readily available set of mentors you can call on for advice on issues as they arise.

How to bluff your way through meetings
How to bluff your way through meetings

 YL 10 Aug 2015

At least once in your stellar career, you will find yourself under prepared for a meeting. Of course, your reason is quite plausible and nothing to do with laziness or procrastination!
