NSW Young Lawyers

President's Message

Simon Bruck - President, NSW Young Lawyers

Welcome to NSW Young Lawyers for 2021.

This year as we hope the world recovers from COVID-19 we at NSW Young Lawyers are looking forward to meeting you at one of our events, whether they are online, in person or both. 

NSW Young Lawyers is made up of many active communities in so many areas of law, who meet monthly to hear from guest speakers and careers panels, and who coordinate competitions and social events. Don't be shy, come along to meet and network with other early career lawyers and law students who are interested and engaged in the same areas of law that you are. If you're keen, you might even come across an opportunity to contribute to a law reform policy submission.

With the NSW Young Lawyers Charity of the Year being Minds Count in 2021 this year we are raising awareness of wellbeing in the law and have a number of events planned to encourage mindful activities, learn about mental health and reduce stigma.

We are pleased Professor Megan Davis is the NSW Young Lawyers Patron for 2021, and amongst other events, especially look forward to learning from our Patron in her State of the Profession Address later in the year.

This year we have some major events and competitions planned - but don't miss out; as an eligible early career lawyer or NSW law student you can subscribe to the NSW Young Lawyers email list for the areas of law that you are interested in. Subscribe to NSW Young Lawyers at lawid.com.au. And keep in touch on Facebook too, NSW Young Lawyers and each of our communities has a Facebook page to help keep you up-to-date.
