Maithri Panagoda recently celebrated
four decades in legal practice. In that time, he
has learnt many lessons — including and
especially the importance of integrity.
On this episode of The Lawyers Weekly Show, host Jerome Doraisamy is joined by Carroll & O’Dea partner Maithri Panagoda to discuss his journey from Sri Lanka to Australia, how and when he realised that legal practice was his vocational calling, his passion for justice and the rule of law, the most significant periods and experiences in his legal career, and his perceptions of injustice.
Mr Panagoda also details the landmark cases he has been fortunate enough to work on, the impact of those cases, his time working in regional Australia, the lessons he has learnt over the course of his storied career, his advice for lawyers in the current climate, and what excites him about the future of law in Australia.
