Guest Speaker & WLANSW Patron: The Hon. Justice Jane Mathews AO. The Career Intentions Survey seeks to obtain data with a view to tracking and analysing the career paths and decisions of both female and male law graduates in New South Wales.
The Career Intentions Survey is a major initiative of WLANSW for 2013. The survey seeks to obtain data with a view to tracking and analysing the career paths and decisions of both female and male law graduates in New South Wales.
The Toplines Report for the Career Intentions Survey pilot which took place in August to November last year will soon be available on the WLANSW website, together with the background information, on our Career Intentions Survey page under Workplace Practices http://www.womenlawyersnsw.org.au/content/career-intentions-survey-0
66 percent of student participants in the pilot propose to practise as a lawyer, while 7 percent do not propose to practise as a lawyer. Of those intending to practise as a lawyer, 57 percent propose to practise as a solicitor, 42 percent propose to practise as a government lawyer, 31 percent propose to practise as a barrister, and 28 percent propose to practise as an in house lawyer, as their long term ambition.
The top three areas of practice in which participants would like to specialise are corporate and commercial law (39 percent), criminal law (38 percent) and family law (23 percent).
Members of the profession are invited to join the WLANSW Executive Committee and project Subcommittee in celebrating the formal launch of the survey project and release of the Pilot Toplines Report.
