Announcing your 2019 LIV Young Lawyers Leaders

Announcing your 2019 LIV Young Lawyers Leaders

By LIV Young Lawyers



We are delighted to announce and introduce your LIV Young Lawyers (YL) Executive Committee for 2019.

The 2019 LIV YL president is Matthew Daly, a lawyer in the government practice group with Sparke Helmore Lawyers. He brings more than four years’ legal experience acting for government service providers, as well as a long-standing commitment to supporting community legal services through voluntary work.

Building on the section’s achievements last year, Matthew will further advance its focus on implementing supports for member’s health and wellbeing, measures to achieve equality in the profession, as well as initiatives to prepare and skill members as lawyers of the future.

He will lead a diverse team of committee chairs and representatives, together with incoming YL vice president Alice Cooney, to deliver a year of events, activities and advocacy for our YL membership. “I’m excited to lead such a great team and be able to build upon the incredible achievements of our YL Executive Committee from 2018. Having served as co-chair of the Professional Development Committee last year, being appointed president is a great opportunity to share that knowledge and help support our committee chairs and our members more broadly,” Mr Daly said.

“This year promises to be a year of rebirth for the LIV, including the LIV YL. We’ve moved to a new home at 140 William Street in the heart of the legal precinct, which boasts expanded conference rooms, library, bookshop and collaborative working spaces. I recommend everyone pay it a visit.”

“We’ve got fresh leadership with CEO Adam Awty and president Stuart Webb who are keen to implement new ideas. We’ve got a great line up of events and initiatives focused on delivering added value to our members including a range of novel and innovative projects. Finally, our LIV YL flagship events, the careers seminar series, the LIV Careers Fair, the Golden Gavel and our end of year gala, all promise to continue expanding and giving LIV YL continued benefits,” he said.

Please join us in welcoming this year’s LIV YL Executive Committee.
