Better late than never – on Thursday morning Chelsea White and Lea Hiltenkamp were welcomed to the profession at the Law Society of Western Australia’s breakfast event. Over 200 recently admitted lawyers were addressed by Law Society president Jocelyn Boujos, Young Lawyers Committee chair Chris Burch and keynote speaker Judge MacLean.

The presenters explained that young lawyers should remember that we are here to assist clients and members of the community from all walks of life, the importance of collegiality in the profession and the need to actively work on maintaining good mental health. Judge MacLean conveyed some very useful tips for young advocates, many of which were to the laughter of the crowd.
