Highlight: Resilience is not wellness

For the judges of the 2022 Australasian Law Awards, “resilience” does not birth wellness. Thus, in crowning Brave Legal as last year’s winner in the Excellence in Employee Health & Wellbeing category, the panel looked for sincere action.

“[Brave Legal is] truly innovative and inspiring. This is an example of true caring and action in an industry which often thinks that ‘resilience’ is the key to wellbeing issues. What a unique and caring initiative – a law firm where health and wellbeing are synonymous with legal resolve”, the judges said.

Brave Legal is once again in contention for the Excellence in Employee Health & Wellbeing award this year, and the firm has a chance to record back to back wins in this category. But it certainly won’t have an easy time of it – fellow finalists include big global firms and national firms.

Looking to snatch the win from Brave Legal this year are the following:

As the 2023 Australasian Law Awards ceremony draws closer, the shortlisted candidates will surely be waiting with bated breath for the final results. But regardless of who takes the crown, the legal profession is the true winner as it continues to benefit from a greater focus on taking care of lawyers.
