What federal election legal work looks like

01 July 2022 By Robyn Tongol
As per her firms mantra, Kiera Peacock says that the law “should be used as a force for good”. To this end, she has been heavily involved in legal work for and with candidates in the last two federal elections.
On this episode of The Lawyers Weekly Show, host Jerome Doraisamy speaks with Marque Lawyers partner Kiera Peacock about how and why she got involved in legal work pertaining to our electoral processes, what falls under the broad umbrella of such legal work, what the day to day looked like during the recent federal election and who she was working with.  
 
Ms Peacock also reflects on the intensity of such legal work in the lead-up to an election, what she has learned about herself both personally and professionally from the election cycle, how other lawyers can be involved in elections work in the future, and why such legal work is so important for the effective functioning of our democracy.
