President's Report

President's Report

By Matthew Daly


Milestone year for YL Welcome to the first edition of the YLJ for 2019. I wish to thank the previous LIV Young Lawyers president Brendan Lacota for his dedication to our profession throughout 2018 and I look forward to building on this momentum in 2019. LIV YL is committed to providing you with support, professional development and networking opportunities. We will advocate on your behalf on issues such as equality, embracing technology, facilitating wellness, and ensuring you have a successful and fulfilling career in the law. This year marks the 40th anniversary of the LIV YL, a time to reflect on what we have achieved, and to look forward to a new era. From humble beginnings, we now have more than 8000 LIV YL members, including law students, new lawyers and later lawyers. We have recently moved to 140 William Street – a new home for you to meet and collaborate. On 3-4 February, YL vice-president Alice Cooney and I represented our section at the annual LIV Conference of Council, which was opened by the new Victorian Attorney-General Jill Hennessy, who emphasised the value of legal representative bodies such as the LIV. Melbourne Lord Mayor Sally Capp spoke of the importance of supportive and discrimination-free workplaces. LIV CEO Adam Awty and LIV president Stuart Webb outlined the LIV’s strategy for 2019-21, which includes a focus on increasing our value offerings to members – reflected in a calendar full of events, advocacy and opportunities for engagement.
