The Public Interest Law Careers Guide Launch

Date: 5 October 2016
6pm to 7pm
Venue: Monash University Law Chambers, 555 Lonsdale Street, Melbourne
RSVP: Register here

Are you a law student or lawyer wondering what lies beyond the corporate law path? Are you interested in public interest law?

The Progressive Law Careers Guide is an online resource, and this free launch will be interactive, with the chance for you to hear from a panel of young professionals working in areas such as human rights and government.

There are many opportunities for lawyers in non-profit organisations, statutory bodies and government in Victoria but it is often hard to find out what they are. This new guide will present dozens of organisations for you to consider, plus testimonials from people who've made a career in public interest law work.

The Guide aims to educate students and professionals about the Public Interest Law sector and provide much needed information on how best to pursue a public interest career. The Guide is also a useful resource for secondary school careers counsellors.

This event is FREE and is presented by the Castan Centre and the Progressive Law Network
