President's report

President's report

By Phoebe Blank


This year YL wants to foster community spirit and build networks among members. Welcome to the first edition of the YLJ for 2017. I am thrilled to be working with such a passionate Executive Committee with exciting and innovative plans. This year we have a strong focus on engaging with Young Lawyers (YL) members by fostering a community spirit and providing fresh opportunities to grow personally and professionally. A great bit of advice I heard once was “if you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go with others”. We encourage you to check out our range of LIV mentoring programs, including judicial mentoring and buddy program, as well as upcoming Lawyers Helping Lawyers workshops. We will also have new events from our regional, suburban and later lawyers networks and working groups. We are conscious of making sure that the YL section is a safe space for law students, graduates, young lawyers and later lawyers to connect and grow personally and professionally. The Executive Committee understands that when YL members feel supported and comfortable, they are more likely to attend events, write articles for the YLJ, prepare submissions on law reform or community issues and have their suggestions heard. This has the natural flow-on effect of ensuring positive mental health and overall job satisfaction. To achieve this objective we will implement a range of new initiatives that will foster a genuine sense of YL community for our members.
