newlawyerlanguage is a new discourse for new and emerging lawyers.

We aim to promote thought and dialogue about what being a professional means in the modern legal landscape.

We fashion much of our professional identity on observations of established lawyers.  To this end, we offer stories and advice from practising lawyers, as well as monthly interviews with leading lawyers in our community.

newlawyerlanguage aims to build resilience in new and emerging lawyers and encourage a healthy balance between practitioners’ personal and professional lives.  A regular column from our resident psychologist provides useful insights and tips on how to strike that balance.

Join us on this journey of professional self-discovery.  Be part of this important conversation.
