The ADLS Newly Suited Committee provides a monthly forum to raise and discuss matters of concern for those new to the profession. The Committee members intend to promote and create networking and mentoring opportunities, as well as a number of collegiality events. The Committee also hopes to assist with existing ADLS programmes, such as the Young Lawyer & Students Buddy Programme as well as Work Experience Opportunities for Law Students.
The members of the Committee are all new to the profession, ranging from recent graduates through to those who have 5 years’ PQE. Members are drawn from a diverse range of firms and practice areas from graduate students to junior barristers and solicitors at large and small private practice firms. The Committee is not limited to Auckland as it has attracted members from Palmerston North and Hamilton – and the Committee is keen to hear from the newly admitted from all around New Zealand.
