    Returning to studies mid-life, I have embarked on an academic journey by undertaking the Bachelor of Laws undergraduate course.

    The flexibility, convenience and support offered by ECU were pivotal in my decision to take up this challenge. The lecturers and staff are extremely supportive, encouraging and approachable, and always provide the help I need. I have found the culture at ECU very empowering.

    As the recipient of the Cullen McLeod Prize in Contract Law II in 2018, I now have the chance to complete an internship at a law firm. This is a great opportunity to apply the theory I've learnt to real world practice.

  • "Since graduating from ECU, I've been able to secure a graduate position at one of the largest law firms in Australia, MinterEllison"

    The focus of the Law degree at ECU is very practical. Some of my lecturers had held jobs in Parliament, ASIC, and the AAT, and were able to bring a very practical mind-set to the units they taught, something I think is very important for those wishing to practice after they complete their degrees. My studies at ECU provided me with the essential framework to begin working in, and applying for corporate positions.

    Whilst studying Law at ECU, I was lucky enough to travel to Canberra for the Australian Law Student Association Conference as a delegate. At the conference, top students from all Law Schools in Australasia come to learn about issues facing law, learn new skills, and compete. I competed in the Witness Examination competition, this taught me a lot in regards to Court etiquette, legal procedure, and dealing with clients. It was also an excellent opportunity to network with students from all over Australia, New Zealand, and Asia.
