Protégé: Moving up from small town to big firms as a young graduate
From a small town on the Sunshine Coast through to working in bigger places, this young lawyer talks to students and graduates through making it as a regional lawyer.
In this episode of The Protégé Podcast, host Naomi Neilson is back to sit down with Travis Schultz and Partners’ senior associate Hugh Powell to talk through how he ended up in personal injury and compensation law from a small town in Queensland.
We also get into what it takes to make it in this area of law (no matter how small a place it starts from), travelling far distances to commit to a legal career and the best path that new students can take to get to the same places.
The episode also has some bonus tips on going back to studying for a master’s degree and how to switch off from work at the end of the day.
