The Annual Professional Breakfast is JATL’s premier careers event. It gathers students, academics and members of the legal profession together over a gourmet breakfast to discuss developments in the law. It also celebrates the launch of JATL's annual law journal, Pandora's Box. In 2017, the central theme for Pandora's Box will be "War and Pieces". The journal will explore the law of and relating to conflict, and the ways in which it shapes international and domestic policy, both in historical and contemporary perspectives.
Attendees at the breakfast had the opportunity to meet a number of distinguished legal professionals. The Honourable Judge Smith of the District Court will delivered the keynote address. His Honour holds the rank of Colonel and reviews Courts-martial and Defence Force Magistrate proceedings.
