Message from the President
Michael Colbran QC
6 March 2014
Welcome to the first edition of our new electronic publication 'Profile'.
The background to this publication is that over many years the Law Council has provided weekly updates to its members, the Law Societies and Bar Associations around the country. Recently the constituent bodies resolved to facilitate direct communication by the Law Council to Australia's barrister and solicitors.
In designing this new publication, the Editorial Team has been very keen to endeavour to identify issues which are relevant to our intended audience and a method of communication that is easy to access and digest. There is no point in the publication unless it serves the need of the audience and we are keen to learn what that need is. It will be of very great assistance if comments, criticisms and constructive suggestions could be channelled through to the Editor, particularly in these early days of the development of the publication.
