Motivated to support those less fortunate than
himself, Nick Edwards has served on the boards of numerous
not-for-profit organisations over the course of his career. The
experience, he says, has made him a more rounded legal
On this episode of The Lawyers Weekly Show, host Jerome Doraisamy is joined by Hamilton Locke partner Nick Edwards to discuss how and why he first got involved with board work for NFPs, rising to the position of board chair, learning about the intricacies of issues to be solved and the flow-on professional skills that come with such work
The pair also discuss how lawyers who are keen to involve themselves in NFPs can roll up their sleeves, why such extracurricular activities might be crucial for professional development in a post-pandemic world, and why – on a personal level – it is so rewarding to give back.
