NewLaw Careers Series

Published on 01 January 2021

The legal ecosystem is complex, multidisciplinary and evolving. Delivery of legal services and products requires the capabilities of many people working seamlessly in collaboration with each other and customers/clients. Contemporary legal practice is all about new - new law, new professions and specialisms, new areas of practice, and new ways of conceiving, working on and solving new legal problems.

In this NewLaw Careers Series, we're exploring the new professions and specialisms in contemporary legal practice in a bunch of different ways – webinars, podcasts, case studies, mini series, summits, roundtables, sprints – and so the list goes on.

Some of these careers are well developed, others are evolving – we’ll collect them together here by career title.

You'll hear from people in these roles in law firms, legal departments, government and ALSPs. We'll do a deep dive on what they do, how they do it, and why. We'll also discuss these roles with employers (big, medium and small) so you'll know when and how these new roles add value to your legal practice and for your customers/clients too.

HUGE thanks to our outstanding collaborators and faculty – they are the who’s who of NewLaw professionals!

If there are NewLaw Careers you would like us to feature OR if we can assist you in your NewLaw Career, please contact us: NewLawCareers@collaw.edu.au.
