As well as being an organisation that promotes networking and collegiality amongst young lawyers, YLC also serves a broader social funciton – we want to leverage young lawyers to use their powers to do good in the Wellington community.

The key ongoing way in which we do this is through our “Bridging the Gap” mentoring programme, which provides mentoring services for law students about to reach the end of their law degrees and looking to transition into professional life. For more information on that programme, see the “Bridging the Gap” tab.

If you have other ways or ideas to help young lawyers contribute to the community, email us at
