Shepparton legal careers showcase 2019
Date: 20 May 2019
Shepparton Law Courts in partnership with Greater Shepparton Lighthouse Project will showcase local employment opportunities to Year 10, 11, and 12 students from Shepparton High School, Mooroopna Secondary College, McGuire College and Wanganui Park Secondary College.
The event now in its second year is coordinated by Amy Robinson, Coordinator Industry Links and Transitions for Lighthouse, Pat Cummins Senior Registrar for Hume Magistrates Court of Victoria and Lori Hodgson Senior Practice Advisor with the Department of Justice and Regulation.
“Many young people are interested in legal careers but are not aware of the full range of career pathways available to them locally. This career aspiration day shows the diverse jobs available whilst also giving young people access to chat with professionals within these fields to gain a better understanding of the multiple pathways into these roles” Ms Robinson said.
Pat Cummins said, “This event was so well received last year by local students we are happy to take part again to increase awareness of local jobs and also empower teachers and careers advisors with the most up to date information about the careers available here locally and how they all connect within the Shepparton Law Courts.”
Lighthouse is a community organisation that has created a movement to improve wellbeing and educational outcomes of young people in Greater Shepparton. The concept of the Legal Professions Careers Day was actioned through Lighthouse’s Collaborative Leadership Table ‘Launching successfully to work or further study’.
“There are so many great career opportunities right on our doorstep and days like this can ignite passion and aspiration for our young local people and increase their opportunities to access meaningful and ongoing study and employment pathways” Ms Robinson said.
