Join a Society Committee
To express an interest in getting involved in a Society committee and for more information about these committees, see here. Society committees provide a forum for members to participate in the life of the Society. It is an opportunity to contribute to law reform, professional development and the Society’s work in promoting access to justice in Tasmania; represent the professional interests of legal practitioners in Tasmania; consider issues affecting the legal profession; and connect with legal practitioners with similar interests. Committee members gain professionally and personally from collegial contacts, and future Society leaders often emerge through involvement in the committee system.
