I joined the LIV Young Lawyers Section in 2020 as a Graduate Lawyer, and now in 2023 as an admitted practitioner, the value of my LIV membership has only increased over time.
Whether it be through the vast array of networking or CPD events, the ability to participate and have a voice in submissions on law reform, or regular updates through LawNews on legislative issues, my membership has allowed me to engage with the industry on a deeper level and provided me with opportunities I would otherwise not have had access to.
I first joined the LIV as a member in my graduate year in 2018 and got involved in the Young Lawyers Section in 2020. In 2021, I became the Co-chair of the Law Reform Committee and was able to draft and manage law reform submissions and working groups with a particular focus on the prevention of sexual harassment in the workplace, diversity and human rights.
Being able to contribute to policy on serious issues affecting our profession and the community at large is what I’ve enjoyed the most about getting involved in the LIV. I highly recommend others to do the same.
