Auscript supports NSW Young Lawyers

 


Auscript was proud to be a key sponsor of New South Wales (NSW) Law Society’s Golden Gavel competition where ten young lawyers took to the stage to battle it out for the public speaking crown.

The NSW Golden Gavel, held during National Law Week, has run since 1993. It is a public-speaking competition that focuses on legal topics and is open to all NSW Young Lawyer members and law students. Competitors are given their subject 24 hours prior and tasked with delivering a five-minute speech.

The winning speaker, Floyd Alexander-Hunt from The University of Sydney, had the 800-strong crowd enthralled during her speech on the topic ‘Everything uni didn’t teach me about the law (that TV did)’.

Special mentions were also given to Runner-Up Emily Aitken from Seyfarth Shaw Australia, and Peter Clayton from the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions who took out the Sparke Helmore Lawyers’ People’s Choice Award.

Auscript COO Kate Gaske said the Company was pleased to be part of this iconic event in the NSW legal calendar as part of Auscript’s commitment to the future of the legal industry.

“Golden Gavel gives young and aspiring lawyers the opportunity to showcase their advocacy skills and receive recognition from their peers,” she said.
“The high calibre of participants in this year’s competition certainly proved that the future of the legal industry is in good hands.

“The event aligns with our future focus and commitment to supporting the legal community with fast and precise certified transcripts.”

Auscript delivered a transcript of the winner’s speech in close to real-time. The transcript will be published in next month’s NSW Law Society Journal.

“We pride ourselves on delivering transcripts with exceptional speed and accuracy with the majority of our transcripts delivered same day,” Ms Gaske said.
