The President's Welcome Speech
The French Australian Lawyers Society ('the Society') was formally created in 2013. Its aim is to establish a network of French speaking lawyers who are interested in the Australian and French legal systems, working and/or looking for work experience in France and Australia. The Society’s members include French and Australian lawyers, as well as jurists studying, practising, teaching or researching law in France or in Australia.
The Society provides resources to its members and support for law students coming to Australia/France for work experience or study. It does so by organising various networking functions for the legal community in Australia and France as well as seminars for both legal professionals and the French business community in Australia on topics of interest such as European Law.
Notre Societé a été créée en 2013 à Sydney. Son objectif est de réunir les avocats, juristes et étudiants français et australiens, et de favoriser une meilleure compréhension de la culture juridique française et australienne.
The Society welcomes new members and offers several categories of membership.
