Of Young Lawyers



NSW Young Lawyers is the largest body of young and newly practising lawyers, and law students, in Australia, with 15 Committees each dedicated to a particular area of law. 

Active, innovative and dynamic, we support practitioners in the early stages of their career development, giving them the opportunity to extend their network, expand their knowledge, advance their career and contribute to the profession and community.

  • Legal practitioners (including barristers) admitted to practice in NSW who are under the age of 36
  • Legal practitioners (including barristers) in their first 5 years of practice post admission in NSW
  • Students enrolled in an approved course of studies, the successful completion of which leads to the entitlement to apply for admission to practise as a lawyer or legal practitioner in NSW
