Student stories

    ECU Law graduate

    "My parliamentary internship gave me insight into the political arena of law"

    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.

    You are taught to challenge yourself outside of a textbook and incorporate theoretical knowledge into practical experience.

    "My undergraduate journey at ECU has been amazing"

    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.
