BBM’s freelance journalist Carli Willis catches up with the team at Marrawah Law, a firm based in Cairns that is uniquely 100 percent Aboriginal owned, 70 percent Indigenous Staff and 70 percent female staff. In recent times, the female solicitors have received nationally and internationally recognised awards and listings. She catches up with Leah Cameron, Founder and Principal Solicitor, Cassie Lang, Senior Solicitor and Mikaela French who is a Solicitor at the firm. Some of the deadly advice they gave to those considering a career in law;- Ask for mentorship as much as needed. If you’re feeling shy, try emailing the person you are seeking the mentorship from first.- Take opportunities for placement and volunteer positions – you can gain so much experience in these roles.- Be true to yourself and what you are ok with and not ok with – its ok to say no.
