Answers to some of your Frequently Asked Questions

How do I join the Hello Law Squad?

Simply follow the step-by-step instructions here.

How is the Hello Law Squad different from other groups?

Hello Law is a community where we embrace learning out loud and supporting each other in our legal practice. We want members to be able to access legal skills, practical skill sets, outside what is available in main stream professional development.

Our Hello Law Squad is 100% online and focused on helping lawyers, students, graduates, early career lawyers and anyone who wants to refresh and/or expand their knowledge of the essentials of the ever evolving practice of law. We share experiences and educate others in an online community about varying aspects of legal practice that are often not covered in traditional conference or professional development offerings.

Our founder is deeply immersed in the community and always interested in receiving requests for support you want from your community. This makes Hello Law the perfect place to seek specific support about something, and have your questions answered.

Who is the Hello Law Squad for?

The Squad is for anyone who feels they will get value from what we’re putting out there! Our community is ideally for:

  • lawyers
  • law students
  • graduates
  • early career lawyers
  • new barristers
  • law academics

Is the Squad for Principals/Directors of law firms or entrepreneurs to gain support for their new adventure?

Not really. Whilst you are still absolutely welcome to join us, if you are looking for support to help you set up or grow your new firm or venture, we highly recommend The Club by the Happy Lawyer Happy Life creator Clarissa Rayward.

Why does the Squad cost money?

When there’s plenty of free resources out in the world today, we do get asked this question a bit. We absolutely appreciate that costs are a concern for everyone. The fees charged to members are used to cover the costs of bringing the Hello Law initiative to the world. This includes costs such as video recording and editing software for our recordings, subscriptions, email and website costs. Many of our amazing guests are providing their time free of charge because they believe in the value of this initiative; to support other practitioners.

We hope to continue to try to keep fees less than the regular coffee or entertainment subscription each month.

Do you use Facebook for the Squad?

Yes, we do. We originally launched with a different platform, however we found that the development of Facebook groups provided a better suited platform for our community.

Importantly, using Facebook as our platform allows us to keep our costs down so that members fees can go back into developing better and more meaningful content to members.

Can I buy membership for a friend or someone in my firm?

Yes, absolutely. Just reach out to us at hello@hellolaw.com.au and we help you set it up.

How can I or my organisation support Hello Law?

We are absolutely open to partnership and sponsorship opportunities with people and organisations that align with our ethos of positivity and wellbeing in the legal profession. Please email our team at hello@hellolaw.com.au to chat further.

What kind of workshops do you run in the Squad?

We run workshops about all types of things in legal practice. We have events that are focused on professional skills like client interviewing, costs and billing, working in teams and practice of law; wellbeing, stress and burnout, technology and using simple technology to improve your practice; blogging skills; marketing skills including writing marketing copy and went to use it; further education in and out of law.
