Tanya Heaslip grew up on a cattle station in Central Australia. She was the first student of School of the Air to study and graduate from law school and, from there, her career was as varied as it was incredible, including working on the Lindy Chamberlain inquiry and teaching English to Czech lawyers and judges.
On this episode of The Corporate Counsel Show, host Jerome Doraisamy is joined by author and freelance in-house commercial and legal adviser Tanya Heaslip to discuss her upbringing on a remote cattle station, attending School of the Air and how such education gave her a unique grounding for legal studies, and her journey from working on a major national inquiry to then moving to the Eastern Bloc after the fall of the Berlin Wall.
Ms Heaslip also details her experiences of penning three books about being a girl from Alice Springs, the lessons her uncommon life and career have taught her, and what other corporate counsel can learn, particularly in such a turbulent age.
