Protégé: How to step into a leadership role from the very beginning

Protégé: How to step into a leadership role from the very beginning

19 December 2021 By Robyn Tongol

For the immediate past president of the UTS Law Student Society, being involved became much more than picking up important legal skills and making connections. In addition to the rewarding experience and accomplishments, it was an opportunity to learn how to manage a leadership role from the very beginning of her legal career.

In this episode of The Protégé Podcast, host Naomi Neilson is joined by former UTS Law Student Society president Vicky Kuo to chat about her experience over the last four years, as president but also in other positions within the organisation. The episode is another spotlight on why law students should be getting involved too.

As part of the episode, Vicky discusses all of the advantages to getting involved: from making important connections with other members, learning how to manage a whole organisation, and picking up skills that will be useful in the real legal world.

We also talk about what it meant for Vicky to step into a leadership position, particularly as a woman in law, at such an early stage in her legal career.

“It meant a lot to me to be able to be in a leadership position, knowing that perhaps there’s someone out there who maybe wants to be in a similar position a few years down the track and they’re able to see that it’s possible,” Vicky shares.

The episode also touches on how a psychology degree has helped her experience in law and explores her interest in pro bono legal work.
