Established in 1993, the Golden Gavel is a public speaking competition focusing on legal topics. It is open to all NSW Young Lawyer members and law students. An annual event in the National Law Week program, it is an opportunity for young or aspiring lawyers to showcase their advocacy skills.
UTS will be holding an internal audition on Tuesday 28th March at 6pm to select two students to audition in the NSWYL Golden Gavel Student Round. The winner of this audition will then speak at the Golden Gavel Competition on Friday 19th May at The Westin Sydney.
If you’re not interested in entering the competition, you can still come along with all your friends and be entertained for the evening!
And don’t miss the incredibly witty speech delivered by our very own Zoe Rochford, last year’s student winner, entitled ‘Star Laws: The Force Awakens’ that can be found here.
