On this episode of The Protégé Podcast, host Jess Feyder speaks with Joshua Kelly, who has spent two decades as a cop and held the role of police prosecutor, about why he decided to begin a law career.

Mr Kelly discusses why his role in the police force has aided his understanding of the law and why it gives him a unique perspective to practise from.

He discusses cases during his time as a prosecutor that impacted him and motivated him to make the change to law.

Mr Kelly also talks about where he sees his legal career going and where Australia’s prosecution system might be flawed.
