They say laughter is the breakfast of champions, so put down your smashed avo on toast and get yourself to the annual Golden Gavel Competition! Have the pleasure of watching ten very brave (naive) young lawyers battle it out for the NSW Gavel comedy crown, and enjoy a side of LOLs with your breakfast!
About the Golden Gavel

It is a great opportunity for young or aspiring lawyers to showcase their advocacy skills in a popular and well received event.
