AUT Law School is proud to host the Great Graduate Speaker Series, with AUT law alumnus Charlie Piho discussing diversity in the law: how our legal profession can do more to reflect the rich diversity of the communities and organisations we represent.
Charlie is a Senior Crown Prosecutor with Kayes Fletcher Walker, at the office of the Manukau Crown Solicitor. He is a criminal trial lawyer in South Auckland and will be addressing diversity in law and discuss topics such as:
Is there anything you can do, as an individual in the legal profession, to promote the inclusiveness of others?
Do you ever feel like you don’t belong in our legal profession because you have a different background from others?
Does our legal profession need to change the way we have traditionally done things to serve the communities and organisations more effectively and fairly?
