LawTalk is the official magazine of the New Zealand Law Society.
First published in 1974, LawTalk is New Zealand’s longest-established and most widely circulated legal publication. The current circulation is 12,400 copies.
LawTalk is published fortnightly, 23 times a year and is sent to every New Zealand-based lawyer and others involved in the legal services industry, including members of the judiciary.
Doing it for themselves
More than 1,000 of New Zealand’s 12,000-plus lawyers are in sole practice as barristers and solicitors. Why do they choose this route and what is practising on your own like? For some viewpoints on these questions, LawTalk spoke with four sole practitioners from various parts of New Zealand.
