Queensland Law Society

The final LawLink session for 2017

Indigenous law students from across south east Queensland converged at Law Society House on Tuesday 24 October for the final LawLink session of the year. Students heard from a number of prominent QLS staff members including President Christine Smyth, regarding the work that the Society undertakes, the many career opportunities available in law and QLS’s Reconciliation Action Plan. We were also delighted to have Indigenous elder, Uncle Joseph Kirk, open the event by giving a thought provoking and very inclusive Welcome to Country.

It was a terrific evening that hopefully inspired students to continue down the path of law and introduced them to career options they may not have previously considered. QLS also invited the students to become student members and take advantage of the benefits that the Society can offer them now and into the future. 

LawLink is an on-going student liaison program that aims to provide indigenous law students with a greater understanding of legal practise by connecting them with members of the judiciary, practitioners and other students. The program was established in 2003 and is an initiative of the Society’s Equity and Diversity Law Committee.
