  • "My parliamentary internship gave me insight into the political arena of law"
    Rachel RobsonECU Law graduate

    It has definitely assisted me with my career as my research paper was published and discussed in Parliament, and my contribution acknowledged by the MP.

    Apart from the internship, I was fortunate to undertake a work placement program with the Law Society of Western Australia, in their Law Access Division. This gave me an insight into the pro bono area of work for law. I’ve had a great experience at ECU.
