The Bar, the pandemic and the future
In this episode of The Lawyers Weekly Show, the president of the Australian Bar Association, Matthew Howard SC, unpacks how the coronavirus crisis has been affecting barristers across the country.
Matthew talks with host Jerome Doraisamy about how well prepared the Bar was for remote working conditions, what barristers are doing to remain connected under social distancing regulations, and what measures the respective bar associations have put into place to support barristers’ wellness.
He explains how the uptake of technology will provide increased access to justice in a post-pandemic world, what key learnings for barristers have come out of the current crisis, and why becoming a barrister should still be considered by emerging lawyers.
