Auckland District Law Society: New Editor for Law News

ADLSI Appoints New Editor for Law News

Auckland, 25 March 2014 – Auckland District Law Society Incorporated (ADLSI) today announced the appointment of corporate and commercial lawyer and former publishing editor Lisa Clark to the high profile position of Editor of Law News, ADLSI’s flagship publication.

Published weekly, Law News is distributed to more than 2,600 ADLSI members across the country, as well parliamentarians, newspaper editors, educational institutions and other law societies in New Zealand. Law News features important articles and opinions on key legal developments, information of nationwide interest including updates on ADLSI committee activities, upcoming events and happenings in the legal scene, legal and judicial appointments as well as employment opportunities and legal advertisements.

Ms Clark started her career practising as a commercial litigator, and over subsequent years worked as a senior solicitor servicing corporate and commercial clients in Auckland and as a publishing editor for a leading UK firm of specialist legal publishers, covering subjects such as aviation, energy, telecommunications and intellectual property across a range of publication formats including books and legal journals.

Sue Keppel, ADLSI chief executive, says Lisa Clark brings a fresh perspective to Law News.

“As a lawyer and a writer/editor, Lisa has a combination of skills that will be of enormous benefit to Law News as we communicate with our members and highlight issues of importance to lawyers and their clients. I am confident that under her stewardship Law News will continue to evolve and flourish.”
