Are law graduates ready for the real world? Have your say today.
The Centre for Professional Legal Education (CPLE) at Bond University has been retained by Queensland Law Society to conduct research into assessing the job readiness of law graduates and newly admitted lawyers entering private practice.
As the legal profession is currently undergoing a significant period of disruption, and cultural and technological changes are poised to reshape the delivery of legal services, this research is needed now more than ever.
The survey will highlight disconnect between ‘desired skills’ and ‘actual skills’ of law graduates and newly admitted lawyers. It will also investigate the discrepancy between employer expectations of the skills required for legal practice, as well as the current legal education framework helping people develop these skills.
This survey will close on 31 March. If you haven’t completed the survey, you are strongly encouraged to have your say now.
This important survey is anonymous and should take you about 10 minutes to complete. Your opinion is crucial and your input is needed to build an evidence base to promote change for the profession.
