Protégé: Getting into the ‘wide world of legal practice’ with Women in Law award winner
Law students and graduates who choose to work alongside inspirational women, take advice from senior female practitioners and bring up others along with them have a really valuable trait that could help propel them into a successful legal career.
In this episode of The Protégé Podcast, host Naomi Neilson is joined by Law Student of the Year winner of our 2020 Women in Law Awards Melany Toombs to talk about what the win means for her, the female practitioners she has worked alongside and her own contributions to supporting the advancement of women in the legal profession.
We also chat about some unique opportunities she has had during her first few years of study and legal practice – and how others can mirror this success – and how to keep non-legal interests tacked onto future legal careers.
Melany also talks us through how her faith-based approach to the law and to her career has helped shape her experiences.
