Committee Meetings

Most NSW Young Lawyers Committees meet once a month, at the following times and dates.  

Each Committee has a dedicated web page where you can find out more about their activities, join a mailing list or contact the relevant Committee Chair.

The format of Committee meetings is relaxed, often with refreshments provided. Sometimes guest speakers will be invited to address meetings on a current topic in the law. New ideas are always welcome so don’t be afraid to make suggestions, whether it’s about an existing project or a new one.

For those practitioners who cannot attend a meeting in person, arrangements can be made for you to participate by teleconference. Remember to RSVP to the Committee Chair if you choose this option, so they know to expect you and can provide you with dial-in details.
