Ms Rajah explained ways in which young professionals, trying to define themselves and their legal careers, can carve out a meaningful role in a broader legal environment that continues to evolve and innovate. In her presentation and the question and answer session that followed, Ms Rajah shared some anecdotes from her experience, both in practice and as a politician and a policy maker.
