“Millennials are socially conscious. They are more vocal because they have the platforms to speak from which other generations never did. That freedom is unprecedented.”

 

On this episode, we meet Luke Geary, a leading figure for social justice and pro bono legal work. Luke helped found Salvos Legal, a social enterprise law firm which funds free legal services for people in need across Australia, where he continues as a board member alongside his role as partner in the not-for-profit team at Mills Oakley. Luke is also recognised as an instrumental figure in transforming the legislative framework on human trafficking, as well as advocating in the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse.

In this episode we discuss…

– The fortuitous discovery that led to Luke’s path to Law

– Luke’s success as Mills Oakley’s youngest partner in 150 years

– The origin and rise of Salvos Legal

– The place of Salvos Legal in the landscape of social enterprise

– The challenges of creating a law firm that competes with top tier commercial brands

– The inspiration for Legaler Aid
