Why this young lawyer became a barrister

By Contessa Pizanias|02 August 2019

Award-winning barrister Matthew Littlejohn joins host Jerome Doraisamy on this week’s episode of The Lawyers Weekly Show to discuss why he chose to go to the bar at such a young age and why he is encouraging others to follow in his footsteps.

Matthew shares the issues, challenges and opportunities he has faced in his career as a barrister so far, why it’s imperative to identify when you need help, and his advice for graduates coming through the ranks if they are thinking of joining the bar.

He also shares why he uses social media to promote his chambers, how he navigates the need for social interaction at work and how barristers need to ensure they are looking after themselves in regards to mental health.
