BarTalk | April 2012

Law degree equals lawyer. Or does it? In this issue we hear from law graduates who have charted different paths, in business, research, writing – even martial arts! If you want on the bandwagon, then read how LAP can assist. We also hear snippets of what some lawyers did before they obtained those law degrees (what a talented bunch we are!), and get a call to arms on the detriment to our society from a lack of lawyers in politics. We also preview the upcoming Family Law Act and this year’s Law Week activities.
