New Superannuation Lawyer’s Award
The purpose of the New Superannuation Lawyer’s Award is to encourage young lawyers who practice or research in the field of superannuation law to explore issues of significance that have a bearing on the legal framework for superannuation in Australia. A theme will be selected and announced each year that the award is offered.
With the longer-term aspiration of attracting new lawyers to take an interest in the field of superannuation law, this award seeks to:
- develop a new lawyer’s understanding in relation to superannuation and trust law;
- enable a new lawyer to attend our national conference, who might not otherwise be able to attend the event;
- create a platform for new lawyers with an emerging interest in superannuation to showcase their interest through a piece of legal writing; and
- publicly recognise and highlight the award winner as an emerging new superannuation lawyer.
