The Asian Australian Lawyers Association is pleased to announce that Gordon & Jackson, Barristers' Clerks in Victoria, became a sponsor of the AALA from 1 January 2016.
Ross Gordon, Principal Clerk said:
"Our list is diverse in its expertise across all legal practice areas and in the origins and cultural backgrounds of our 162 barristers.
We value opportunities to build strong relationships within our community and accordingly we are delighted to support the goals and aspirations of the AALA.
Australia sees itself as very much a part of Asia and as lawyers are increasingly engaged at national and global levels. We are proud to support the development of our Asian Australian lawyers and we are excited about opportunities for relationship building and connection with our Asian legal colleagues."
President Reynah Tang thanked Gordon & Jackson for its generous support for the association and said:
"The sponsorship reflects the commitment of Gordon & Jackson and its barristers to engagement with Asia, and follows on from their previous sponsorship of one of our events.
With the support of our sponsors, we are hoping to announce some exciting new initiatives this year including a scholarship prize for emerging Asian Australian legal talent.
We look forward to working with Ross and his team as we continue to build our relationships and connections into Asia, and as we strive to advance cultural diversity in the legal profession."
