Editorial: New career opportunities

Editorial: New career opportunities

By Adam Wakeling and Andrea Desouza

With clerkship and graduate applications and performance reviews coming around for 2017, it's time for the YLJ to once again turn its attention to careers. With so many more law graduates, it remains challenging to obtain traditional entry-level positions. Therefore, more young lawyers may look to expand their employment horizons. This edition has a new career opportunities theme, looking at some of the options available to law graduates and young lawyers in the changing job market. There are profiles of lawyers and law graduates who have started businesses, moved into quasi-legal or non-legal careers, or taken different pathways into legal practice. There are also articles on networking, gaining experience through volunteer work, and other topics which will be relevant no matter what career path you take. The LIV has various programs to support graduates including the annual LIV Legal Careers Fair on Thursday 13 July, mentoring services, development of practical information, together with partnering with educational institutions and future employers, and offering free career development advice through its events and publications. Get involved in LIV Young Lawyers by joining a committee or writing an article for the YLJ or the YL Blog as a great way to develop your own commercial skills, professional networks, and build your public profile. We hope to see you at a committee meeting or social event soon.
