The Corporate Counsel Show: ALRC GC on pursuing interesting legal roles
From an early stage, Matt Corrigan knew that choosing roles in law that were of interest to him would allow him to bring his best self to work. Such an approach has seen him work all over the globe, from Myanmar to South Sudan.
On this episode of The Corporate Counsel Show, host Jerome Doraisamy is joined by Australian Law Reform Commission general counsel Matthew Corrigan to discuss the importance of finding roles in law that will interest and motivate an individual, so as to thrive and succeed, and how he looks to imbibe such an attitude in his own team and help them grow professionally.
The pair also discuss the ALRC’s experience in the age of coronavirus, the lessons learned for law departments in government agencies from the past year, and the differences in navigating environmental fluctuations for such teams relative to corporate entities.
