Leadership at the Bar


Practice Management Essentials Webinar Series - Module 4

How often do you carve out the time and headspace to work on your career – not just in your career? As a junior barrister, how do you look for and create opportunities for leadership? What can you do to help yourself be perceived as a leader? This module will give you an opportunity to think strategically about how you can enhance how other lawyers perceive you professionally, progress your career and demonstrate effective leadership.

Join Dr Ann Kayis-Kumar, Senior Lecturer & Tax Clinic Director, UNSW Business School for the fourth module of the Practice Managements Essentials Webinar Series, commencing April 7th. The “Leadership at the Bar” course forms part of a paid series hosted in conjunction with UNSW and will include the following lectures:
