Did you know that two of our lawyers are involved with the Newcastle Law Society? We are proud to say that James Bartley and Sally Mackay serve on both the Social Sub-committee and the Young Lawyers Sub-committee. James Bartley has also been selected as the Committee’s Young Lawyers Delegate.
The Newcastle Law Society represents almost 600 solicitors practising in both the public and private sectors in the Newcastle area. Its objectives are to assist with educational and training opportunities for the local profession, to promote local legal initiatives and to lobby on key issues affecting local practitioners.

The Newcastle Law Society provides support to the Newcastle Legal Aid Commission and to the Hunter Community Legal Centre. In a regional area like Newcastle, it is important that the community has access to free legal services such as these.
Congratulations, James and Sally!
