President's Report

President's Report

By Brendan Lacota


Get ready for your future in the law. Welcome to the first edition of the YLJ for 2018. I would like to start by thanking our previous LIV Young Lawyers president Phoebe Blank for her hard work and dedication throughout 2017. LIV YL provides our members with support, professional development and networking opportunities. As well as advocating on their behalf in relation to issues important to our members such as gender equality, closing the pay gap, and ensuring our members have successful and fulfilling careers in the law. To succeed, tomorrow’s lawyers need to understand the law, but also have a deep understanding of how legal decisions impact on the complex and multifaceted lives of our clients, regardless of whether those clients are businesses, families or people experiencing disadvantage. Tomorrow’s lawyers all need a far greater understanding of finance, interpersonal relationships, and technology than the lawyers of yesterday. All new lawyers should seek to learn and develop these skills throughout university and their early career. Through a calendar full of events, advocacy and opportunities for engagement, this year LIV YL is committed to ensuring new lawyers, of all ages, are well prepared to succeed in tomorrow’s legal profession.
