One of the highlights on the NSW Young Lawyers calendar, the State of the Profession Address is conducted by our patron for the year, who will speak on an issue of importance to all young lawyers. The patron selects the topic themselves based on how they view the current state of the profession and what we should be considering for the future. Free to attend, the State of the Profession Address is an unmissable opportunity for all young lawyers to hear from one of Australia’s leading legal minds.
Registrations to attend this popular event will open in the coming months. For updates, please check back or follow our Facebook Page.
