Who’d be a lawyer? Five reasons why being a lawyer is awesome

01 Apr 2015

Do you ever open the newspaper and think to yourself “who’d be a lawyer?!” We have a highly challenging employment market and unacceptable levels of mental illness, and often get a ‘bad rap’ from the community (did I mention that the Commonwealth Attorney-General, George Brandis, publically stated that lawyers say ‘self-serving things’ last week?).

How to write in plain language (and why lawyers should)

Are you biased? And is it hurting your career?

18 Mar 2015

Let’s face it – like it or not, we’re all biased. On the train, at the pub and even in the workplace, we rapidly assess a situation by applying stereotypes or ‘stories’ to a situation and people to help us make sense of them. Don't believe me?
