Young Lawyers Pay and Conditions Survey

The time has come for our annual Young Lawyers Pay and Conditions survey! 

We are seeking ACT-based lawyers, male or female, with 5 or fewer years of post-admission experience to participate in a joint survey between the Women Lawyers Association (WLA) ACT and the ACT Young Lawyers Committee.

The survey is anonymous and will take 10-15 minutes to complete online.

We are also offering a $100 voucher to David Jones to one lucky survey participant. Instructions on how to enter the draw is provided at the conclusion of the survey. 

The purpose of this survey is to collect data about the characteristics of individual lawyers working in the ACT, and the nature of their employment, pay and conditions. The ACT is a small jurisdiction and information about employment, pay and conditions is often unavailable in the public sphere, making it difficult for lawyers, in particular junior lawyers, to find an independent benchmark from which to negotiate their entitlements.

The WLA ACT and the ACT Young Lawyers will collate and publish the findings of the survey with the aim of providing ACT lawyers with an insight into their professional community. We will launch the findings of the survey at an event in October or November 2016 - further details to come.
