President's report

President's report

By Linda Rayment


On 11 August 2016, the LIV YL hosted the famous Golden Gavel public speaking competition over breakfast at Zinc. Some of the bravest, wittiest lawyers battled it out for the coveted Golden Gavel state title. Congratulations to all who participated. YL is also excited and privileged to host our flagship event, the LIV Young Lawyers Charity Ball, on 8 September. This year we are holding a charity auction in support of the Wellbeing and the Law (WATL) Foundation, a joint initiative of the LIV and the Victorian Bar established to raise funds to support the mental health and wellbeing of people in the legal profession and law students. Get your tickets now! YL is delighted to support the WATL Foundation, as one of our focuses this year is improving mental health and wellbeing within the profession and law schools, and we are introducing a Health & Wellbeing week to coincide with the LIV Fun Run. Make sure you get involved so that better health and wellbeing practices can be promoted in your workplace. Workplaces can be stressful environments, whether it’s dealing with different personalities, managing expectations and competing priorities, or looking after your health and wellbeing. Chat to someone about what you’re going through rather than trying to deal with it alone. We need to break down the social stigma associated with seeking help so that we can manage challenges in a healthy and responsible manner. Talk to a trusted friend, colleague or mentor, and remember as an LIV member you can contact the Victorian Lawyers’ Health Line service, which provides free, confidential, independent 24-hour wellbeing services: 1300 664 744. Your health and wellbeing need to be a priority. Please do not hesitate to contact me at younglaw@liv.asn.au LINDA RAYMENT is 2016 YL president. She is CEO and co-founder of the Human Trafficking Resource and Assistance Centre.
