STUDENT MEMBERS

Asian Australians are heavily underrepresented at the senior levels of the legal profession. The Asian Australian Lawyers Association aims to promote cultural diversity in the law and break down the “bamboo ceiling” faced by so many Asian Australian lawyers. As the next generation of young lawyers, you are an important part of that change.

 

By becoming a student member of the AALA, you give Asian law students across Australia a collective voice to be heard on important student issues.

Each Branch welcomes expressions of interest from students. By registering as a member, you can keep updated about our upcoming events and activities. You would also be eligible to nominate to join your local Branch as a Committee Member and may choose to participate in a Branch Subcommittee. Your membership will also help the National Executive Committee gauge the level of interest from students in each state, so that we can plan our student engagement events and activities for the coming year. 

 

To register as a student member, "Sign Up" above.
