The law students of today, who will become the lawyers of tomorrow, are not prepared to accept a workplace culture where bullying, sexual harassment and lack of care for mental health exist, says the Australian Law Students’ Association.

On this weeks episode of The Lawyers Weekly Show, ALSA outgoing president Erin Ritchie and incoming president Margaret Cai discuss the issues that are important for law students around Australia, outline the issues that ALSA is advocating at present, and lay down the gauntlet for the profession to change environmental factors of the past that have no place in the legal profession of the future.
