From Australian footballer to BigLaw partner to human rights trailblazer
Moya Dodd, who splits her time between a national firm and governance and human rights advocacy roles, says there is much that lawyers can learn from team sports, as she works to improve the lives of women worldwide.
On this episode of The Lawyers Weekly Show, host Jerome Doraisamy speaks with Gilbert + Tobin partner Moya Dodd about her football career – which saw her play for Australia in the late 80s and early 90s – the myriad hats she wears in law, governance, football administration and human rights advocacy and what she is hoping to achieve from such work.
The pair also talk about the lessons that lawyers can learn from sportspeople, why playing sport can be so valuable for legal professionals, the critical importance of teamwork and keeping one’s wellness in check while pursuing excellence.
