UNSW has a fantastic law school that is progressive and constantly evolving with the times. The tutorial style of teaching is to be commended – it allows for analysis, debate, deep thinking – and an opportunity to engage with great minds and develop relationships – something which those of us in the law are truly fortunate to have. Personally, UNSW law school taught me to think critically, and a degree from UNSW allowed me to enter the world (and business) of law. To have obtained a law degree from the University of New South Wales is a true privilege. And a privilege that I feel needs to be paid forward. Through my career in law I have not only been able to advise clients, but also to help others, in many meaningful ways – whether through pro-bono work, mentoring, not-for-profits or board roles.
