The Communications and Media Law Association’s (CAMLA) Young Lawyers committee is calling for expressions of interest to join them in 2018. 

CAMLA Young Lawyers is an official sub-committee of CAMLA of up to 15 young lawyers who represent the interests of young lawyers working in, or who have an interest in, communications and media law in Australia. CAMLA Young Lawyers also assists the CAMLA Board with fulfilling its objectives. 

The CAMLA Young Lawyers committee aims to be representative of all sectors of communications and media law including private practice, in-house, government/regulatory, academia and persons with a genuine interest in the area, including students.

Committee members are asked to attend monthly meetings (in Sydney) and are required to participate in organising events and contribute to the Communications Law Bulletin.

If you would like to nominate to become a 2018 CAMLA Young Lawyers committee member, please send us a brief CV and explanation as to why you would like to be part of CAMLA Young Lawyers for 2018.

Please email your expression of interest to camla@tpg.com.au with your name and organisation in the subject line by Friday 1st December 2017.
