Quality and consistency through collaboration

We are pleased to announce that Molly Campbell, Senior Associate in our Government team, based in Canberra, has been recognised as a finalist in the category New Lawyer of the Year for the 2022 ACT Law Awards!

Molly is a senior member of Sparke Helmore’s government team, specialising in information law. She provides FOI advice to agencies of varying sizes.

She actively supports her junior lawyers, offering them learning opportunities and mentoring them in the early stages of their legal careers, and has actively promoted the value of a law degree to students through various ANU programs. She is also her firm’s local Pro Bono Coordinator, a volunteer role she has held for three and a half years. Among her pro bono achievements is working with the ACT Women’s Legal Centre to set up an ongoing CALD Divorce Clinic supporting vulnerable Canberra women from diverse backgrounds, and a remote Wills clinic during the pandemic.

Congratulations again to Molly on this outstanding achievement!
