Contribute to Legal Tweaks

Every year, the Society asks members of the legal profession one simple question: if you could change any regulation in Australia, what would you change, and why? The product of that discussion is Legal Tweaks, the annual publication of the NSW Society of Labor Lawyers.

Legal Tweaks is proudly sponsored by Maurice Blackburn Lawyers, who carry on the inspiring legacy of Maurice McRae Blackburn, a champion lawyer and federal Labor MP. 

2023 Contributions

The NSW Labor Lawyers annual publication Legal Tweaks is in the works.

Legal Tweaks is the perfect place for you to put forward a reform you've always wanted to see enacted.

Your tweaks will be published in our journal, and distributed at our Annual Dinner.

It's a fantastic way to share your ideas with like-minded practitioners in our Society, to get your ideas down on paper, and to vent your frustration at a long-hated piece of the law. Legal Tweaks is proudly sponsored by Maurice Blackburn Lawyers who carry on the inspiring legacy of Maurice McCrae blackburn, a champion lawyer and federal Labor MP.
