Careers in law profile: Catharine Thorpe

Careers in law profile: Catharine Thorpe

By LIV Young Lawyers

Occupations Workplace 

Catharine Thorpe is senior associate to the Hon. Justice McLeish – Supreme Court of Victoria, Court of Appeal. Catharine provided the following career profile to LIV Young Lawyers as part of our ongoing careers in law series. How did you get your first job in the law and what was it? Fresh out of law school, I worked as a tutor and researcher at the University of Cape Town where I had studied. The position gave me insight into the workings of a law school from the perspective of the staff rather than the students. Until then I hadn’t appreciated just how different those perspectives were. Professors and lecturers are cheering on their students more than the students realise – I think they would often be excellent mentors if asked.
