HAL announces high level Orations in 2018 around Australia

Dear Colleague,

Welcome to the New Year.

Hellenic Australian Lawyers Association has a calendar of 2018 events that will further enhance the reputation of HAL, both nationally and internationally, for hosting high level educational events.

Next month HAL will hold a Chapter Oration in Tasmania. Orations will subsequently be held in other States and Territories that highlight contributions of Hellenism to contemporary legal issues and build on the tradition of oratory that originated in classical Greece.

We are privileged that the President of the Hellenic Republic of Greece has accepted the invitation to open the HAL International Legal Conference in Rhodes, adding to widespread interest around this event.  The Conference has attracted, as speakers, a number of eminent jurists and scholars from Australia and overseas.

This newsletter also acknowledges the appointment of HAL member Chrissa Loukas-Karlsson SC to the ACT Supreme Court.

Mentoring returns as an important focus for 2018. Past participants have commended the Mentoring Program for opening up career options, and offering measured advice on negotiating demands and challenges faced by lawyers.
