Australia's leading legal influencers for 2022

Australasian Lawyer crowned 29 members of the profession

Australia's leading legal influencers for 2022

After a difficult two years that upended the globe, the world is finally settling into the “new normal.” In particular, the Australian legal profession has learned to adopt crucial changes, infusing tech and flexibility into the way it works. From a traditionally archaic style that favoured manual processes, the profession today has taken easily to the use of video conferencing, e-mail and other automation methods.

The integration of technology into legal operations represented one of the biggest changes to the industry since the pandemic reared its ugly head. With tech making remote work not only possible but preferred in many cases, flexibility at work became crucial to lawyers. Nonetheless, lawyers also became adamant that flexibility not be observed just with working arrangements, but also in terms of diversity and inclusion and wellbeing

The legal profession may still be in the process of adjusting to a changed world, but the situation has also revealed the best of Australia’s lawyers. This year’s Most Influential Lawyers made significant contributions to the environment and culture of law, championing important initiatives like diversity and inclusion and work/life balance.
