UNSW Law & Justice has a long and proud history supporting our Indigenous leaders of tomorrow. Our Indigenous law graduates have also gone on to lead inspirational professional and personal lives in areas ranging from international diplomacy through to community service.
To honour and celebrate the achievements of our Indigenous community – with more than 100 Indigenous law graduates to date, the faculty hosted a university celebration on Friday, 29 March 2019 recognising UNSW Law & Justice’s Indigenous program students, alumni, friends and supporters.
To commemorate this milestone, a video was produced to celebrate the stories of UNSW Law & Justice’s graduates, showcasing the rich tapestry of resilience, triumphs and relationships our students have formed over the years.
This booklet celebrates the stories, experiences and successes of our UNSW Law & Justice graduates.
Rhyan Clapham, also known by his stage name ‘Dobby’, has written and produced a rap specifically for our 100 Indigenous Graduate Celebration. Rhyan is an alum of UNSW, graduating with a Bachelor of Music and Indigenous Studies in 2015.
"UNSW Law & Justice has been home to so many Indigenous law students with academic staff who are very genuinely and deeply committed to the education of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students as well as research and advocacy for law reform that impacts the lives of Indigenous peoples."
