Committee

What we do

The Business Law Committee brings together students and practitioners in early stages of their career to disseminate developments in business law, discuss relevant issues and share ideas about improving the profession and the practice of business law. The purpose of this committee is to educate young practitioners, represent their voices and to assist with their transition into the legal practice.

Our initiatives

  • The Business Law Committee regularly invites industry professionals to speak at their monthly meetings to enhance value for members. The committee provides a representative cross-section of speakers from commercial practice, the Bar, industry leaders and directors of legal professional bodies.
  • The committee regularly host professional and social networking events for members, including panels and workshops. These events feature speakers with specific expertise in areas such as:
    • Commercial law
    • Banking and finance
    • Taxation 
    • Anti-money-laundering
    • Cryptocurrencies and fintech
    • Competition and consumer law  
    • Insolvency
    • Intellectual property law
  • The committee contributes to a range of publications and submissions on proposed legislative changes.
  • Members receive access to the committee’s popular ‘Getting Down to Business’ newsletter, which highlights important legal updates in the Business Law sector as well as suggestions for managing wellbeing.
  • The committee also promotes the wellbeing of its members by encouraging participation in events such as City2Surf, as well as regularly discussing common issues faced in the workplace and coping mechanisms for day-to-day practice.
