President's Report

President's Report

By Phoebe Blank


What an excellent start to 2017. The YL Executive has already provided many fantastic events, activities and programs for our members. February – Hardware Lane was packed with lawyers as the Victorian Attorney-General opened the legal year at the Legal Laneway breakfast. Our first professional development event this year, Your Career, had an amazing turnout and provided members with invaluable career tips and insights from a dynamic range of speakers. March – YL had great success in its annual Your Future in the Law orientation event for newly admitted lawyers. March also focused on one of our key goals this year – mentoring. We launched the LIV Judicial Mentoring Program, the LIV Buddy Project and the LIV Matched Mentoring pilot program. I strongly encourage YL members to get involved. As a result of the success of these programs, we are working hard to provide you with an even wider range of mentoring opportunities and services in the near future. April – In April, we enjoyed a good laugh at the LIV comedy debate. Our Social Committee has worked effectively to ensure we have casual social gatherings after each event this year, fostering a great sense of community. These events are relaxed and open to all YL members. We continue to be committed to improving mental health for young practitioners and will be soon launching a range of Wellness initiatives. We launched the LIV Run Club and LIV Walking Group. They are free to join, good for your mind and body, and a great way to make new friends in the profession.
