The New Zealand Law Society | Te Kāhui Ture o Aotearoa supports a number of new lawyer groups around the country for anyone with less than seven years of post-qualified experience. Now we are setting up a national group with a direct channel into the Law Society to complement our regional groups.
This is an exciting opportunity to make a real difference to those joining the profession both now and in the future. Expressions of interest to join the group are open from Thursday 5 August to Friday 3 September 2021.
We expect the group to meet online on a regular basis. Exactly what and how you do things will be down to you to decide. It is likely you’ll want to meet once a month and there may be projects that you can opt in and out of depending on how much time you have.
You don’t need to be a member of a current New Lawyer group to apply. You also don’t need to be young. We encourage anyone who is a new lawyer to apply, regardless of what stage in life you’re up to. We want the group to be truly representative of the profession.
If you’re interested then please fill in the Expression of Interest form and send that along with an up-to-date CV to our General Manager Membership Services Glenda Macdonald:
If you have any questions about the group or the EOI process, then please email Glenda.
