Title (Dublin Core)

Jewish Melbourne: Kadimah event with Michael Gawenda and Mark Leibler

Description (Dublin Core)

Given lockdown restrictions, online programming was necessary for Jewish organisations.
"Join Michael Gawenda – journalist, Yiddishist and author of The Powerbroker – and Mark Leibler AC – Jewish lawyer and community leader – in conversation with Kadimah board member and Sir Zelman Cowen Centre director Professor Kathy Laster.

Why are so many Jews attracted to the legal profession? What shaped Mark Leibler’s – and so many other prominent Jewish lawyers’ – commitment to Indigenous people and causes? Was Mark able to shed his natural caution as a lawyer to open up for the biography? Is there a connection between pro bono contributions and Jewish values? For biographer and subject, how is it possible to reconcile the professional, public and personal responsibilities of a distinguished and multilayered life in the law?

The renowned lawyer, his biographer and the academic unpack the deep, multi-layered influences on a formidable career and life."
