Comprehensive data will allow for better decisions to be taken in the future to broaden and enhance the work we are doing and benefit law graduates across NSW and eventually Australia in the future.
The Law Graduate Study will bring that empirical rigour to the debate about the number of law graduates and what happens to them post-graduation. The study aims to dispel myths about law graduates’ employability and recent media commentary about the perceived oversupply of law graduates.
The newly developed LegalVitae connects law students and graduates to all employers nation-wide, harnessing the power, influence and reach of The Law Society of NSW in unprecedented ways. For the first time law students and graduates can research and view all in-house, government, private practice and public interest opportunities in one place. LegalVitae provides employers the opportunity to showcase their brand and connect with law students in a variety of different ways.
The return of the Sydney Law Careers Fair this year was a great opportunity for students to explore all the opportunities available to them with a law degree. The Law Fair targeted penultimate and final year law students, particularly those interested in obtaining summer clerkship or graduate employment. This was another fantastic opportunity for students to connect with employers and discover endless possibilities.
The work the Graduate Services team have done over the last 12 months has been instrumental to the change and success of changing the future prospects for law graduates in Australia.
