Beyond Law is Australia's premier website dedicated to providing law students, law graduates and young lawyers the information and resources to assist them in pursuing careers and opportunities during and after law school.

As Australia's fastest-growing job-search site, Beyond Law is the essential website for informative and ahead-of-the-curve legal job news, resources and career advice, filling the gap between universities, law student societies and the legal workforce. The website serves those looking for new legal work, seeking a change in career, starting out or just searching for solid employment advice in the legal market.

Beyond Law was founded to pair law students, graduates and young lawyers with organisations sharing a passion for law and social justice, to provide resources to help job-seekers in the legal industry, and to help organisations find the best legal minds they possibly can. Now as the #1 job-search site for law students, graduates and young lawyers, Beyond Law strives to promote the plethora of diverse national and international opportunities available to those with a law degree.

Our vision is to promote the best opportunities to those with a law degree, and to provide targeted and engaged legal talent to employers.

Who is behind Beyond Law?

Anthony Lieu

Managing Director

Beyond Law is Anthony's latest venture, with experience working in the private, public and non-profit legal sector. Outside Beyond Law, he works as the Head of Marketing and a lawyer at LegalVision. He was named one of Australia's Top 50 Chief Marketing Officers in 2018 and 2019 (CMO50 List).

Following his tenure on the Australian Law Students' Association, Anthony recognised that the oversupply of law graduates in Australia, coupled with the tight job market, was a prevalent issue. He founded Beyond Law to address the information gap that stood between law students, law schools and the workforce.

In his spare time, he enjoys snowboarding, scuba-diving and cooking roasts – obviously not all at the same time.

Max Burke

Development Director

Max joined Anthony in late 2013 to build Beyond Law, after they had worked together at the Australian Law Students’ Association.

With experience in management consulting, government, recruitment, and the legal sector, Max’s goal is to help build Beyond Law into a platform for law students, graduates and young lawyers alike that will show just how powerful their degrees really are.

As a consultant at a top-tier management consulting firm, Max now provides strategic advice and leadership.
