Federal election poll launched for legal profession

An industry poll has been launched to understand the key issues impacting legal professionals leading up to the 2022 federal election.

Federal politics has the ability to rapidly and significantly impact the course and trajectory of industries; this is particularly true for those in law.

With the Morrison government looking to pass its Religious Discrimination Bill and amended defamation and online trolling laws before Parliament dissolves, reforms to the federal circuit and family courts taking effect, and life for practitioners constantly evolving against the backdrop of the pandemic, the outcome of the upcoming federal election is likely to have a significant impact on the legal profession and the practice of law.

To better understand the perceptions, opinions and priorities of legal professionals of all stripes, market research firm Momentum Intelligence has launched an industry-wide poll to measure and voice sentiments and concerns of participants.


Momentum Intelligence head of strategy Michael Johnson commented: “This poll is an opportunity to explore industry-specific issues and insights as a vehicle to bring these issues to light ahead of the election.

“It’s an opportunity for this industry to voice what is important to them at a professional and personal level so that their ideas can be amplified and heard by those in Canberra.” 

The poll is open to all legal professionals. The results of the anonymous survey will be aggregated and reported back to the industry via Lawyers Weekly.

The poll has 10 questions and will take no longer than five minutes to complete. In return for participants’ time, Momentum Intelligence is offering a $500 gift voucher to one randomly selected participant who provides their details to enter the optional prize draw.

The survey closes on 15 December 2021.
