UNSW Law shaped my life in many positive ways. I was challenged to think, question & be confident to express an opinion & debate different views. The lectures were exciting & unpredictable. Being the foundation year allowed lecturers & students freedom to develop the UNSW teaching model under the guidance of Hal Wootten. It is a privilege to be an “Original.”
