We, the Melbourne Catholic Lawyers' Association, strive to serve God through our jobs and lives as legal professionals. We strive to build up the Church through our fidelity and witness. We strive to strengthen our society through our professional integrity, commitment to justice, community service and advocacy of the Gospel message. We commit ourselves to lives of faith, hope and love in the service of God and our neighbour.

Purposes of MCLA

  • To provide a forum for lawyers to meet to discuss legal, ethical and work related issues, and to listen to interesting guest speakers.
  • To create a network of Catholic professionals in the legal field.
  • To strengthen and develop the faith of all involved, whether practising Catholics or those "just visiting".

The Association is open to all legal practitioners, including academics, and law students.
