National New Lawyers Group – expressions of interest now open
An exciting opportunity has opened for new lawyers to connect and collaborate on a national level.
We are welcoming expressions of interest for the New Zealand Law Society’s inaugural National New Lawyers Group. The group will complement the work of our existing regional groups and feed directly into the Law Society to influence a positive future for new lawyers.
Anyone with less than seven years of post-qualified experience is encouraged to join the group. We expect the group to meet online on a regular basis and to look at digital networking and education opportunities on a national scale to support new lawyers.
“This is something that we know has been missing at a national level,” says General Manager Membership Services (Representative) Glenda Macdonald.
“Our regional groups already do a fantastic job of supporting their local network of new lawyers. This is a way to harness that passion and enthusiasm on a national scale to complement their work.”
“We’re also aware that young lawyers can struggle to have their voices heard, so we’re excited about the opportunity this group will have to contribute to the Law Society’s work and the support and opportunties that we provide the profession.”
Expressions of interest to join the group are open from Thursday 5 August to Friday 3 September 2021. Please fill in the Expression of Interest form and send that along with an up-to-date CV to firstname.lastname@example.org
