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. 

2019 Edition

It's that time of year - submissions are now open for the 2019 edition of Legal Tweaks.
