The Careers Team

JATL hosts a variety of unique and exciting careers events each year, all with a social justice focus. These events provide an opportunity for law students to network with legal professionals who have contributed to topical areas of social justice and law reform. Whether students are interested in finding more about pro bono opportunities within their degree or are looking for assistance with their first steps into the legal world, the careers team is dedicated to providing information and support to help students find a rewarding and meaningful career in the legal industry.
