27 June 2008

Professor Gillian Triggs quoted in The Australian in regard to recent trends in relation to law graduates fast-tracking their career paths to Partnership within Law Firms.

The article claims that global warming and climate change are presenting wider opportunities for fast-tracking into partnerships, and the scene in the Australian capitals may resemble that of London where, according to Professor Triggs, "lawyers have barely hit the tarmac before they've found a job".

Professor Triggs believes specialisation in nascent enterprises is a surefire way to advancement.

As the nation responds to climate change, law firms large and small will need people with expertise on such matters as industries seeking exemptions, definition of terms, negotiations between companies and instrumentalities, and issues relating to new and constantly evolving realities.

Lawyers will soon have to deal with concepts like "load-based licensing", "tradeable units" and "verification of voluntary carbon offset products and credits".
