Protégé: Why practise in migration law?

27 March 2022 By Robyn Tongol

Given the capacity to work on both commercial and humanitarian matters, migration lawyers can build diversified practices that those in other areas of law may not get exposed to, says one award-winning practitioner.

On this episode of The Protégé Podcast, host Jerome Doraisamy speaks with Crossover Law Group founder and principal solicitor Marial Lewis – who won the migration category at the 30 Under 30 Awards 2021 – about how and why she chose migration law as a pathway, the types of matters that one gets exposed to, and finding the right balance between commercial and humanitarian matters.

Ms Lewis also delves into the challenges that lawyers in this space can and do face and how to overcome these, opportunities on the horizon for those interested in this practice area, why she decided to launch her own firm focused on this space, what excites her about the future (as a young lawyer), and why others should consider this as a vocational pathway.
